Live in your own home for longer with Eldercare Home Care Yorke Peninsula.
Eldercare’s Home Care team services the Yorke Peninsula and Copper Coast regions offering a range of services including general home support, personal care and health treatments.
We understand that your needs and priorities are unique which is why a personalised Home Care plan will be created especially for you.
Your home care plan is updated regularly. It includes details about the services you receive and can be used as a means of communication between Home Care staff, clients and family members so you receive continuity of care.
Your Home Care adviser will discuss the support options available, and the role family and friends can play, to design the best possible package for you.
Registered and Enrolled Nurses form a large part of Eldercare’s Home Care team. With our team of experienced professionals, we can offer additional nursing services including the administration and management of medication, wound care and dementia assessments.
Selecting Eldercare as your Home Care provider of choice means that you will have the opportunity to continue receiving services from Eldercare as your needs and priorities change.
If you make the decision to downsize, Eldercare offers a range of independent living units located in Maitland (The Village Units) and Stansbury (Correll Cottages). Our Retirement Living team can assist you with the process and the purchase of your new home. Home Care services are still available to retirees living in Eldercare independent living units across the Yorke Peninsula.
If you begin to require more advanced care, we also have residential aged care facilities located in Maitland (The Village), Minlaton (South Park) and Stansbury (Elanora) allowing you to remain close to home. Alternatively, Eldercare has residential aged care facilities located across the Greater Adelaide region.
You will need an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) assessment and approval to determine your eligibility for an Eldercare Home Care package.
Visit My Aged Care for more information.
There are four levels of home care packages available:
Your ACAT assessment will determine the level of support you can receive.
To receive Home Care, your service provider will ask you to pay a basic fee of up to 17.5 per cent of the single basic age pension. If your income is over a certain amount, you will also be asked to pay an additional income-tested care fee.
Any fees and eligibility for subsidy will be discussed and agreed upon with Eldercare before you receive the relevant services.
Please note: Half of your combined income is taken into account when determining your income-tested care fee if you are a member of a couple; regardless of which partner earns the income. The value of your home, or any other assets, is not included in this assessment.
If you believe you will face financial hardship in paying for your care costs, you can apply to the Federal Government and ask to be considered for financial hardship assistance.
Visit My Aged Care for more information.
Privately-funded care is also available which bypasses the need to receive an ACAT assessment and apply for a Home Care package through the Federal Government.
There will be no change to the range of services offered and no means testing in order to access Home Care. You may find that funding your Home Care privately is more cost-effective in light of any changes to the aged care pension.
