Overview of Home Care Packages

Home Care Packages are funded by the Australian Government and are targeted at frail older people and/or people with dementia, aged 70 years and over, who have complex care needs and who wish to remain living in their own home.

Our Home Care Packages provide tailored care and support services by helping you:

  • Live how you like.
  • Maintain your household.
  • Be active and able.
  • Stay connected and engaged with life.

Our Care and Services Coordinators will listen to you and discuss your needs. You will be able to design a package of care and services that are tailored to your individual requirements and flexible enough to change when you need them to change.

Our Lady of Consolation offers Home Care Packages to people living in the Blacktown, Parramatta, Holroyd, Cumberland, The Hills and Penrith areas who have been assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team as requiring this level of care.

We aim to provide quality professional care which is delivered in a personable and friendly style. So in recruiting staff we look to only employ people who genuinely like elderly people.

Consumer Directed Care

Our packages are focused on the Consumer and their Carers, addressing their needs, their preferences, their interests, their family life and how we can maintain their health and lifestyle in a way that makes them happy.

Every package we offer is tailored to the individual.

Weekend Coordination

In addition to our Home Care Package Coordinators, we also have an on-call weekend coordinator. This coordinator’s responsibilities include supporting care staff on duty ensuring continuity across all of our Home Care Packages 7 days a week.

We believe this added support is vital to providing the best possible Consumer care.

Focus on Healthy Exercise

Our Consumer’s physical wellbeing is very important to us. We work closely with the Consumer, their families, GP’s and other health professionals to ensure they are receiving the best possible care.

Maintaining our Consumer’s independence, functional ability and strength is a major focus. Many of our services feature a tailored exercise program that has been specifically designed for the individual to meet their needs to allow them to have the most active lifestyle possible. To achieve this we use Exercise Physiologists, working closely with our Registered Nurses.
