Southcare Home care services

Home Care

Southcare provides homecare services in Perth, ensuring you get the care and support you need to stay living independently in your own home and community. Get in contact with the dedicated staff at Southcare to see how we can help with your home care needs.

Why should I consider home care?

Southcare is a Western Australian not-for-profit organisation in Perth that provides access to personalised aged home care services that support you to live with dignity and respect in your own home and community. As you get older, you may find you require support with day-to-day activities at one time or another. For instance you may find you require assistance with cleaning, cooking, meal preparation, nursing visits or showering. When you receive assistance from a home care provider or aged care agencies in Perth, this does not mean you have to lose your independence and stop living your life. At Southcare, our aim is to help support you with a range of tasks you may be having trouble with by providing assistance in the home through personalised home care service options and home care packages. This helps ensure your independence is maintained and you can continue to do the activities and hobbies that help keep you active and living well in your own home and community.

Which home care should I choose?

There are a range of home care and support services available to help assist you or a loved one to live independently in their own home. These services can assist in maintaining your well-being and keep you remaining safe and comfortable in your own home. While Southcare care home services are available for everyone to receive, there are three different home care funding options to get help around the house, depending on your personal living circumstances and needs. These home care funding options include:

  • Home Care Packages (HCP)
  • Community Home Support Program (CHSP)
  • Privately funded (wholly or in-part)

To determine which provider, home care & home care packages will be best suited to you and your needs, you will need to book an assessment by calling the government agency called My Aged Care on 1800 200 422. My Aged Care is the starting point to access and receive Australian Government funded home care services. There are two types of government assessments that help work out your home care and personal care service needs.

  • A home support assessment with a Regional Assessment Service (RAS) if you require low-level support to stay independent in your home.
    1. The RAS assessors come out to visit your home (at a time and date of your choice) to determine the amount of help you may need in the home.
    2. Have your medicare card, doctor referrals and a list of questions you want to know about aged care and home care services ready.
    3. A family member, friend or carer can be present to provide support at your home care assessment.
    4. Once your level of care has been assessed, you can determine which personalised home care services and which home care provider you would like.
  • A comprehensive assessment with an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) if you have care needs that are greater than what the government funded Commonwealth Home Support Programme can support.
    1. An assessor will come to visit your home to determine your personal care needs, but this can also take place in hospital. ACAT assessors are clinicians such as nurses, social workers and physios who consider more complex home care and personal care needs.
    2. Have your medicare card, doctor referrals and a list of questions you want to know about aged home care services ready.
    3. A family member, friend or carer can be present to provide support at your home care services assessment.
    4. The ACAT assessor will determine the level of home care you need and how urgent the care and services are required to help keep you living your best life. Your information is then placed on a national waitlist for a Home Care Package.
