Private Services

Let us tailor a package to suit the way you like to live.

Reach out for a free consultation

Private Services are not subsidised by the government, and can be used to help you if you are not eligible for government funded services or while you wait for a package to be allocated or to top up a government care package if you want more services.

As always, this service  is completely customised to suit the way you like to live.

Our caring hands can do a little, or a lot, it’s your choice.

How does it work?

With private home care services, you skip the assessment process and pay Southcare directly which means you can access high quality care much faster.

Services can be used for domestic assistance  garden maintenance, tailored shopping trips, personal drivers to appointments and individual post-hospital care to help you get back on your feet.

Customers with private services have typically been assessed through My Aged Care and:

  • Are not found to be eligible for Australian Government-subsidised aged care services
  • Are found to be eligible but are waiting for funded services to become available

How much does it cost?

Southcare’s fee structure is simple and transparent with no exit fees, putting you in total control.  The amount spent depends on how much and how often you use our caring hands and the products you need.

We offer flexible service times and costs include wages, travel time, mileage, training and development and other administration costs.
