Home care services

Southcare provides home care services in Perth, ensuring you get the support you need to stay independent in your own home and community.

Which home care should I choose?

There are a range of aged care support services available to help assist you to live independently in your own home. While Southcare services are available to everyone, there are three different home care funding possibilities, depending on your personal circumstances:

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

To determine which home care will be best suited to you, you will need to book an assessment by calling the government agency called My Aged Care on 1800 200 422. There are two types of assessments that help work out your care 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 your home to determine the amount of help you may need.
    2. Have your medicare card, doctor referrals and a list of questions about aged care services ready.
    3. A family member, friend or carer can be present at your assessment.
      Once your level of care has been assessed, you can determine which services and which care service 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 Commonwealth Home Support Programme can support.
    1. An assessor will come to your home, but the assessment can also take place in hospital. ACAT assessors are clinicians such as nurses, social workers and physios who consider more complex needs.
    2. Have your medicare card, doctor referrals and a list of questions about aged care services ready.
    3. A family member, friend or carer can be present at your assessment.
    4. The ACAT assessor will determine the level of care you need and how urgent the services are required. Your information is then placed on a national waitlist for a Home Care Package.
