Private home care services are services which are not subsidised by the government. This means you will have to pay the full cost to access these services, whatever your care needs or financial situation.
You may need to implement private home care services if you have had an assessment of your care needs 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
Our in home care services are available to everyone, even if you are not subsidised by the government. This includes personal care, domestic assistance, garden maintenance and medical services. The only difference with private home care services is you skip the assessment process because you pay from your own funds, which means you can access services much faster.
The table below shows the cost for services delivered by Southcare for self-funded customers.
