St Basil’s is a not-for-profit organisation that has been providing Home Care Packages in the Perth metropolitan area for over 20 years. although St Basil's originally provided services to the Greek community, today it provides services to all people regardless of culture, faith or language. Our staff are experienced in working with people from many cultures. We welcome all people!
We value family, relationships, culture and community; and place a high emphasis on forming ongoing relationships with our clients and their families.
As a small boutique provider, we offer flexibility and a highly personalised service - we believe that client outcomes are best supported when you have a genuine connection with the people who care for you.
We offer all general services such as help in the home, personal care, medication management, shopping, meal preparation and social support. We offer special support to people who require high levels of care, including the use of hoists to provide transfers.
A special feature of our service is based on the belief that relationships are central to happy and meaningful ageing; and that being able to share stories is important to many older people. For this reason St Basil's is committed to selecting a primary support worker for each client – one who will complement our client's preferences.
This might include any special interests, cultural or religious preferences and/or languages spoken other than English.
We know that as people age they want to be able to talk about their life and the things that have mattered - by selecting the right support worker clients are able share their stories with someone who is interested and understands their background. Many of our clients have had the same support workers for several years - client and family feedback tells us that this is a source of comfort to both clients and their families.
Supporting people waiting for a home care package
Delays to the allocation of Home Care Packages can mean that you are left without support at a time that you really require it. For this reason St Basil's can help you design a plan of care that will act as an interim support while you wait. We can also assist in applying for alternative funding.
If this sounds like what you are looking for then please call us to discuss how we can help - we can work with you to design supports during the waiting period.
