Sometimes, when you are not able to get around as easy or as often as before, you need help to manage your daily living needs, nurture your personal connections and widen your social options.

Your needs and requirements; and the way you would like them met are as unique and different as each and every one of us. We may manage some areas of our life quite easily but need support with others.

We listen to all of your needs

Southcare can help you with this. Our services are personal, individual and tailored to your needs. No request is too difficult or too small. We listen to your needs – whatever they are; and we endeavour to find creative solutions with you to meet them.

If you need assistance with a language other than English, we can help you to access interpreting services, so that we can design a support plan with mutual understanding and communication. As well, many of Southcare’s support staff are multi-lingual and come from an array of cultures and backgrounds.

Some everyday supports we provide include:

  • social in-home visits for companionship
  • accompanying clients to appointments and social events for wellbeing
  • social outings via our Social Centre and other community events
  • shopping and banking assistance
  • bill payments
  • information about complementary community events and services

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.
