Home care services refers to supportive care of health care provided by registered, professional caregivers within the home where a client/patient is living, as opposed to care provided in group accommodations and nursing homes. Home care can cover anything from assisting with personal hygiene and care, dressing and undressing, transportation and mobility, rehabilitation schedules and more in hopes to allow loved ones to remain living independently in their own homes.
Depending on the level of your care needs, you may be eligible for home care services which can be accessed to you through the Commonwealth Home Support Programme or a “Home Care Package”.
You may be eligible if you’ve noticed a change in what you can do or remember, have been diagnosed with a medical condition or reduced mobility, experienced a change in family care arrangements, or experienced a recent fall or hospital admission. To qualify for an assessment, you need to assess how much assistance you require with certain everyday tasks, and if you are 65 years or older (50 years or older for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people).
There are some home care providers who deliver services to people with a disability younger than 65, including Bridges Alliance. You may be eligible to receive home care services through the NDIS. Eligible people must be:

With Bridges Alliance, you simply need to be a NDIS client and have the allocated funding for home care services – your support coordinator or local area coordinator can help you with this. That means if you’re an individual under 65 with a disability that significantly affects your communication, mobility, self-care or self‑management, you can easily request for home care services and regain lost independence in your own home with Bridges Alliance
As a registered NDIS provider, we can help you assess your eligibility with an online assessment and an easy phone call. From there, we’ll conduct a face-to-face assessment to discuss which home care services would be most beneficial to your situation, and hone in on which activities you want to be able to do. If you are approved, we can liaise with your support coordinator or local area coordinator on your behalf to develop a personalised support plan to help identify what sort of home care services suit your needs.
