mecwacare is a recognised leader of in-home nursing and care services. Many of these services are available through our Home Care Packages program, which is a coordinated package of care and services that support older people to live independently in their own home for as long as possible. With mecwacare, the client decides the level of involvement they have in the management and coordination of their package. They can make choices about the type and delivery of their services, and we integrate each service to provide quality care that is tailored to individual needs, with the flexibility to make changes, when required.
Some of the services include:
• Domestic assistance
• Personal care
• Respite care
• Food preparation and partially funded meals
• Minor home modifications and maintenance, including gardening
• Allied health, including physiotherapy, occupational therapy and podiatry
• Community outings, including shopping
To be approved for a Home Care Package, you must be assessed, approved and assigned by Aged Care Assessment Services (ACAS) and My Aged Care. You can be referred to ACAS through My Aged Care or by your GP, hospital or healthcare professional. You may also refer yourself by calling 1800 200 422. Assessments are free of charge.
