Sometimes as you get older, you might find you need a little more help at home. That's why VMCH's home care services are designed to help you live at home, day-to-day and continue to do the things that make you happy.
We're here to do whatever we can to support your needs. Our job is to make things easier and more manageable by arranging any of the following:
- Personal care
- Domestic assistance and household tasks
- Home and garden maintenance
- Healthy eating and meal preparation
- Podiatry, physio, massage and other therapies
- Respite, social activities and transport
So, what does it cost? The good news is there are a few options to choose from. The most well-known is a Home Care Package (HCP), which is funded by the government.
As part of your HCP you will also have access to a VMCH case manager. We know a lot about aged care, so naturally, our case managers are knowledgeable and know how to support you to get the most out of your HCP.
What makes them a bit special is their client-focused approach. We offer ongoing service, regular contact via phone and face-to-face visits and we regularly review your services to make sure your needs and goals are being met.
However, sometimes it can take up to a year to get an HCP. Rather than struggling while you wait, we can organise entry-level support through the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP).
CHSP is the first step to helping you get back on your feet if you've had a small health setback. It's a great place to start if you need a little help at home and is funded by the government.
We can also help you with privately funded services. The power lies with you! Choose what services you need, when you need them. We'll work with you and your budget.
Don't worry if you're not sure how to get started. Get in touch and our knowledgeable staff are here to help you every step of the way.
Why VMCH? We're fully accredited and are known for our high standards across everything we do. Most importantly, we tailor services to suit each individual and we support people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Get in touch today! Call your local team on 1300 650 615.
