Southcare can assist you with a wide range of housekeeping services to maintain your quality of life and independence.

If you are having difficulty keeping your home in order due to ill health, age or simply because you can no longer manage it all, we can help.

Our trained care support workers will come to your home and help you to keep those personal touches that matter so much to you. We assist you to do what you can do; and do the tasks which you can no longer manage or are not able to do at this time.

Some housekeeping tasks we can assist with include:

  • cooking, essential shopping, food preparation, washing up dishes
  • washing, ironing,
  • vacuuming, sweeping floors, dusting, changing bed linen
  • essential cleaning including bathrooms, toilets, kitchens, living areas and bedrooms

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.

What about Private Care

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