Auspire Care is a My Aged Care Home Care Package Provider that provides quality home care services through a government-funded program.
Our unique care model can cater to your changing needs, from companionship and domestic assistance to wound care, skilled nursing, skilled nursing complex, hospital-in-the-home and post-operative, and palliative care.
The aged care provides 4 levels of a home care package, which include:
Home care packages: There are four packages – level 1 being the basic package and level 4 being the more comprehensive package. Each package has a budget to get whatever services you need so long as they are in line with your Care Plan and within government guidelines.
Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) A contribution to your home care package may be requested if your family’s income is low. Centrelink determines this.
You pay a subsidised rate from your pocket for services you use (it is subsidised by about 75%).
The services you choose will only be available to you. It is an ideal solution if you cannot handle heavy household tasks or have difficulty driving – either at all or for a short time.
Many people use it after returning from the hospital to recuperate for a few weeks or months, but it can get used permanently.
This program is defined as ‘entry level’, which means it provides a low level of support (usually a couple of hours a week) and offers a list of services (such as household help, transportation, meal preparation and more).
Your place on a waiting list is determined based on your assessment and the availability of government-sponsored in-home support.
While waiting for subsidised support to become available, you can access a few of the services from Auspire care.
Yes, you have a choice of who takes care of you. We visit your home for a free evaluation to determine your needs before we begin services. A caregiver is selected based on the information collected, which is used to find the best match for your needs.
Finally, we advise you to meet face-to-face with your caregiver before deciding who to hire. Changing a caregiver is as easy as calling the office should this individual not meet your expectations. We aim to ensure every customer is delighted.
