SwanCare offers two separate categories of services – Home Care and Home Care Plus. Both offer loads of flexibility and can be tailored to suit. Our role is to work in partnership with you to give you as much support and advice as you need.
Home Care is our core service designed to support the Australian Government’s Home Care Packages Programme. It’s delivered on a Consumer Directed Care (CDC) basis which gives you more choice and control over the types of care and services you receive, how care is delivered and who delivers it to you.
You determine the level of involvement you would like to have in managing your own package and you will be provided with a personalised budget so you can see how much funding is available for services and how the money is being spent.
To be eligible for a Home Care package, you must have an ACAT assessment, which will determine how much funding you will receive.
You can then decide which services you will use.
The great thing about SwanCare is that our carers and health care professionals can provide every type of home care service. So when your needs change, the people providing them don’t have to. No matter what service you use, you’ll enjoy the same care, compassion and respect SwanCare has become famous for.
Why Home care
Costs associated with Home Care services are supported by the Australian Government under the Home Care Packages Programme. Your level of funding support is determined by an assessment through an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) which also determines your eligibility.
We’ll work with you to identify the daily activities that you find the most important and meaningful in the context of your unique personality and circumstance. That way, you’ll receive services to directly support these activities and maximise your available budget.
Once set-up, Home Care offers consistent, long-term care provision that is designed to support you as your needs change in the future. It’s fully flexible and very adaptable.
