What is Home Care?
Staying as healthy and well as possible is the key to making the most of your life. You may be pleasantly surprised at what you can still achieve with a little support.
Anglican Care HomeLife is here to help you go on living independently in your own home for as long as possible. After all, you’ve spent a lifetime creating a home – it’s where you belong and where you want to stay. The Australian Government understands this and funds a number of different options to support seniors who want to maintain their independence and live in their own home. We provide home care services in Newcastle, Taree and Central Coast. Our packages include:
HomeLife Day Support
NEW HomeLife Assist – designed for those waiting on the national queue.
HomeLife – Home Care Packages
Our personalised Home Care Packages provide coordinated care and support to ensure you continue to lead a good life while living at home.
Firstly, one of our HomeLife Care Advisors will sit down with you to help clarify your specific goals and needs. This is an important step in getting to know you (and you getting to know us) so that we can provide the best possible care and support. Then we’ll develop a care plan together that’s as individual as you are, taking into account everything that matters most to you.
We can help you with services that cover lifestyle, exercise and wellness, health and nutrition, personal care and help around the home.
