Why we need aged care services

Insomnia and low quality sleep are common among elderly in Australia. This may be caused by various health conditions such as heart rhythm, sleep apnea or depression. As a result, many seniors wake up frequently through the night and carers end up having to be on alert 24/7 to attend to the needs of their loved ones around-the-clock.

Seniors also tend to have multiple chronic conditions and family carers may not be equipped with the right skills and knowledge to provide the best care, which adds to the stress of both the caregiver and the elderly.

This compromises the quality of care the senior receives and can be exhausting for the family caregiver, who often take on multiple roles: as a personal care assistant, nurse, therapist, treasurer and family member all at the same time, 24/7.

What is elderly care?

Personal Care

Assist with the activities of daily living (ADLs) – eating, bathing, getting dressed, toileting, transferring, and continence.

Nursing Care

Monitor and administer nursing procedures from tube feed and suctioning to injections and wound care.

Medical Escort

Accompany and facilitate transport to-and-fro between home and medical appointments, scans and treatment visits.

Respite Care

Take a break to rest and recharge while our Care Pros take on the caregiving duties.

How we can better care for our elderly loved ones

Providing care goes beyond the physical, practical aspects. Keeping seniors meaningfully engaged is also important for their mental and cognitive well-being and keeps dementia at bay. While this may sound like additional work and effort, it actually enhances your caregiving experience, helps you build a deeper and closer relationship with your loved ones and keeps you going in the long-run.

Even so, caregiving can still be a physically and emotionally demanding journey. In trying times, do not hesitate to reach out for help. From professional carers to support groups, there are many forms of support out there for carers in Australia. You are not alone.

Joining a caregiver support group connects you with fellow family carers, helping you support one another, while sharing practical tips on taking care of a senior loved one. Having a professional with experience in caring for the elderly can also ensure that your senior loved one gets the care they deserve and help to guide you along your caregiving journey.

Cost of Aged Care in Australia

The cost of aged care varies depending on the type of care needed. On average, most personal and nursing care costs approximately $40 to $150 per hour in Australia, but care packages and subsidies are available to offset some of the cost.

Top questions about Aged Care

Service FAQ

Why is it important for the elderly to have care?

As people age, everyday tasks can start to become more challenging. Being able to age and live at home offers a sense of comfort and independence.

Aged care at home can help boost self-confidence, encouraging the elderly to remain active and interact more. Home care also empowers the elderly to do daily tasks independently, with ready support should they need it. These feelings of confidence and independence can be immensely beneficial for the elderly’s overall health and well-being.

What is the shortest duration for a aged care visit?

The duration of a Homage aged care visit starts from just one hour, depending on the family’s preferences and your loved one’s needs.

How fast will I receive the elderly care service?

Once you have confirmed you will like to proceed with engaging Homage’s aged care service, we can match you or your loved one with a suitable Care Professional as fast as within 24-48 hours.

Who are the Homage Care Professionals?

Homage Care Professionals are Australians (and permanent residents) who are passionate and dedicated to delivering quality elderly care to families and care recipients. 100% local, they are trained support workers and licensed nurses from all walks of life.

Does Homage provide live-in aged care service?

We currently provide 24-hour aged care services but not live-in caregiving.

Two Homage Care Professionals will be scheduled for the visits, and care will be split into 12-hour shifts to support you and your loved one round-the-clock each day.

What are Homage elderly care packages?

We have interim to longer-term home care packages with varying care durations so that you and your loved one can find a care package which best fit your needs and preferences. Home care packages can also help save up to 25% for multiple care sessions. Reach out to our Care Advisors at (03) 6146 0719 for more details.

Can I use my Home Care Package (HCP) funding for Homage services?

You may use your Home Care Packages (HCP) to engage Homage services if you self-manage your HCP. You may connect Homage with your registered Self-managed provider to facilitate service bookings using your HCP funds.

We support both private clients and those on government waitlist but require care urgently. Please speak to our Care Advisor today at (03) 6146 0719 if you require care support.

Can I use my NDIS funding for Homage services?

You may use your NDIS funds to engage Homage services if:

2) A plan manager manages your NDIS funds – you may connect Homage with your plan manager to facilitate service bookings using your NDIS funds.

We support both private clients and those on government waitlist but require care urgently. Please speak to our Care Advisor today at (03) 6146 0719 if you require care support.

I have 2 elderly at home. Can a Care Professional care for both?

To ensure you or your loved one receives undivided attention and care, each care recipient would be matched to a dedicated Care Professional who fits their needs and preference. If there are 2 elderly in the same home who needs care, a Care Professional would be present to care for each recipient respectively.
