Why choose ADACare private elderly home care?

Private Elderly Home Care

If you require help around the home but aren’t eligible or don’t want to wait for Government funded aged care services, then ADACare private home care may be for you.

ADACare Private care for elderly at home doesn’t mean it’s more expensive, it can be more cost effective than some Government funded services.

ADACare Private home care can be a good option to cover what you need quickly for a short amount of time.

Maybe this is more cost effective for you or there is a waitlist for the Government service you are trying to access. Or maybe you were assessed by My Aged Care and found not eligible for a Government funded aged care service.

Private home care services are services that you pay for out of your own pocket and don’t receive Government subsidies.

What is ADACare private home care?

Private home care services are services that you pay. They are arranged directly between you and the ADACare Australian Disability and Aged Care Support Services which is registered NDIS Service Provider. You only pay for the services provided and there is no Government subsidy. This also means there is no waitlist or Government involvement.

ADACare provide a wide variety of quality services including Registered Nurses for complex care needs, domestic assistance, like personal care, housekeeping, cooking and outings as well as carers for companionship. ADACare may also provide other support staff such as Allied Health Professionals, advisors, assistants, dietitians, drivers, personal trainers, physiotherapists and occupational therapists.

There is no limit to the number of hours of care provided each week and you can generally increase or decrease the time as your requirements change. With an agreed notice period, you are not required to pay for shifts you do not require.


How is ADACare’s private home care different?

ADACare Private aged care is different from funded aged care services purely through the lack of Government involvement in both funding and regulation.  Because you are not receiving a subsidy for private home care, you don’t need to worry about a Government assessment. There is generally no waitlist to access support through a private provider, so help you require at home can begin right away.

You will be required to pay the full cost the provider has offered, or you have agreed upon with the provider, and cannot receive any home care related subsidies through the Government.

While private home care may seem expensive, you may find that it is more cost effective than other institutional alternatives.

If you are already receiving a Home Care Package (HCP) through the Government, ADACare private home care can provide some extra hours of help which you may not be covered for in your HCP.

ADACare Private home care can be a good option if you require short-term care and returning home from hospital or recovering from a surgery, or can even provide some respite to your carer.

If you require a higher level of home care, private home care can even provide live in or 24 hour care.
