We pride ourselves on finding practical solutions that help you keep doing and rediscovering the things that matter to you.

For example, we can help you find safe ways to spend time in the garden, go dancing, join your family on holiday or even take the dogs for a walk. Our focus is on identifying what you can do and helping you to do it.

Our philosophy is to help you stay as independent and well for as long as possible. We don’t have a one size fits all approach as our clients all have very different stories. We work closely in partnership with you and your family to help you set goals around the things that are important to your wellbeing.

We understand that your needs might range from light housekeeping to a support package that assists you with more complex needs. We can provide you with information, options and services that support you to make informed decisions in keeping with your lifestyle.

Our website lists the services we commonly deliver within the community, however we are responsive and flexible to your needs and enquiries.

Services Q & A

How can I access your services?

Southcare is funded by the Commonwealth and State Governments to provide aged care services in your home and through our Social Centre. We provide these services through the Home and Community Care (HACC) Program and Home Care Packages. Access to these services is determined at a free assessment with you by a Regional Assessment Services (RAS) Team or an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) depending on the level of care you need.

Further information can be obtained by contacting our office or on the My Aged Care website.

Where do you provide your services?

Southcare is funded to provide services within the South-East Metropolitan region. Our service area includes suburbs in the Cities of South Perth, Belmont, Canning, Victoria Park, Armadale and Gosnells.

How much does it cost?

Basic services provided by us through the Home and Care (HACC) Program and subsidised by the Government. Higher and more complex need services may be provided through an Aged Care Package funding which costs more depending on the care service agreed with you. Click here to view our pricing schedule.

1. Does Southcare charge for administration or Case Coordination fees?

No, all administration charges and Case Coordination fees are included in the hourly rates.

2. Why is the 15 min fee high in comparison to the hourly rate?

Southcare is one of the few organisations that actually provides a 15 min service which is sometimes required for a welfare check or medication prompt. Fees include staff travel costs.

How does it work once I have been assessed to receive subsidised aged care?

A member of our Care Coordination Team will contact you to arrange an appointment to come out and meet you. Your family members or a friend may also be present at this meeting, should you desire. Together. we will create a care plan with you centred on your needs and aspirations. Once this has been agreed, we will both sign off on it and your services will commence. You will receive a copy of the Care Plan for keep at your home.

What about Private Care

Southcare also provides Private Care services which are not subsidised by the Government.
