Home Care Service

Entry and assessment to the Commonwealth Home Support Program is through the My Aged Care contact centre, phone 1800 200 422.  The My Aged Care contact centre will regester clients and undertake a phone-based screening process.  Clients will then be referred to Burringilly, based on their assessment needs.

Times of service will be discussed with you to best suit your needs. We will strive to meet your expectations and needs. Sometimes our service times may vary as determined by staff availability, but we will always notify you in advance.

Fees for our services will be discussed at the time of your assessment.

We provide home care services through the Commonwealth Home Support program funded by the Australian Government and the Queensland Community Care program.

The Commonwealth Home Support program provides funding for services, which support older people and their carers, who are at risk of premature or inappropriate admission to long-term residential care. Older people are people aged 65 years and over and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 50 years and over.

Queensland Community Care program services are directed towards assisting younger people with a disability or condition, which restricts their ability to carry out activities of daily living due to functional limitations, and are at risk of losing their independence. This care is directed towards assisting people less than 65 years of age and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people under 50 and their carers.

We respect your rights and follow the Australian Government Charter of Rights & Responsibilities for Home Care. You will receive a copy of the charter when you sign up with us.
