Home Care Services operate both in Hobart and Launceston. The programs provide a wide range of services. Assessment and Case Management is provided by Registered Nurses supported by experienced teams of Home Care workers.
To obtain an assessment, contact an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). There are ACATs in all states and regional areas throughout Australia.
Tasmanian ACATs can be contacted as follows:
Northern Team: 6777 4644
Southern Team: 6222 7274
The ACAT assessment, will determine eligibility for the type of care most appropriate to your needs. There are four levels of home care available:
Levels One & Two – these cater for people only requiring a basic level of services to assist them to remain at home.
Levels Three & Four – these levels cater for people who have been assessed as requiring a higher level of services based on their needs.
We also offer domestic assistance and other home care services on a ‘fee for service’ basis. Private services can be tailored to meet your needs without the need for an ACAT assessment. These services can also be provided to clients who, having been assessed as eligible for a package of care, are waiting for ‘a place’ in a funded program.
Our range of services, dependent upon the package of care, can include:
Case management, personal care, in-home respite, domestic assistance, meal preparation, shopping, laundry assistance, gardening, social support, medication assistance, clinical care (such as nursing services), after hours/on-call support, and transport for appointments.
