Southcare can assist with minor maintenance and repairs in your house, garden and yard so that you can continue to live at home without the stress of worrying about its upkeep, when you are no longer able to do it on your own.

We can help you with minor repairs and maintenance to keep your home tidy, safe, functional and the way you’re used to having it. We can design a regular service plan with you so that, for example, every six weeks, we come around to tidy your garden, check the sprinklers, do some weeding and mow the lawn.

Some services we regularly assist with are:

  • changing light bulbs
  • changing tap washers
  • window cleaning
  • clearing footpaths
  • fixing sprinklers
  • pruning, mulching, weeding

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 start from $8 per hour. 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.

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.
