Home Care

Home care services can help you stay in your own home for longer, with more freedom to enjoy life, by providing the support you need.

You may want nothing more than weekly help around the house or in the garden. Or you might need a daily visit to provide nursing or personal care.

Perhaps you're a carer who needs an occasional break so that your energy and health are maintained.

We can source the support you need at home, manage your services as they change over time, and give you choice and flexibility in the way those services are provided.

The video below gives an overview of home care services, explained by our General Manager of Home Care and Housing, Maria Davison.

Home care is the name for a range of care and services that help you, or the person you care for, to continue living at home for as long as possible.

If you’re still quite independent and active, you might only need a bit of help with daily chores. As time goes by, you might want more help to maintain your independence and keep active in your local community. Later on in life, you may want help with personal care or health needs, such as physiotherapy, podiatry or even nursing.

Depending on your needs and preferences, you may be eligible for Government-subsidised services. These fall into two categories:

  1. Home and Community Care (HACC)
  2. Packaged Care

We can help you find out what you are eligible for. You also have the option of purchasing top-up services if you have requirements that go beyond the services available within subsidised care.

As your needs change, the services you receive at home from Amana Living can also change. We will work with you to determine the best combination of services for you and the most cost-effective way to access those services. We will make sure they are delivered at the right time by skilled and friendly staff.

Let us ensure you get the help you need and want. That’s what we’re here for. Call Leonie on 1300 26 26 26 for an obligation-free chat.

Depending on your needs and preferences, you may be eligible for Government-subsidised services.

These fall into two categories:

  1. Home and Community Care
  2. Packaged Care

When you know what services you are eligible to receive, we can arrange for these to be delivered to you. We operate across the Perth metro area and in Kalgoorlie-Boulder.

We can also arrange top-up services if you want more than the services available to you under subsidised care.

Home and Community Care (HACC)

To find out if you are eligible for HACC services, contact us and we will help you.

Alternatively, you can talk to the Commonwealth Respite and Carelink Centre on 1800 200 422. A Regional Assessment Team will then carry out an assessment and decide whether you are eligible for HACC services.

Packaged Care

Eligibility for packaged care is determined by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). We can help you at every step of the process, so call us at any time for assistance. Assessment works in the following way:

  • Your GP can refer you to an ACAT or, if you are in hospital, the nursing or medical team there will take care of your referral.
  • The ACAT representative will call and make a time to meet with you at home or in hospital, where they will carry out a comprehensive assessment.
  • After this, the ACAT will inform you of the level of care chosen for you as a result of the assessment.

Confused? Call Leonie for assistance on 1300 26 26 26.

What is home care?

Home care is the name for a range of care and services that help you, or the person you care for, to continue living at home for as long as possible. Services range from weekly help around the house to a daily visit to provide nursing or personal care.

How much does it cost?
