Privately Funded Home Care

Privately Funded Home Care is a flexible care option for older Australians.

It’s support to help you get the most out of life. So you can enjoy your home, lifestyle and community for as long as you like, in the way you like.

These services are not subsidised by the Government.

But they can be a great option if you need some extra support. Or if you don’t yet qualify for Government funding, like a Home Care Package.
