Aged Care Packages

Aged Care Packages are provided under a Consumer Directed Care model which places you at the centre of your own care requirements. CDC gives you control, flexibility, and choice over how your services will be delivered to meet your needs.

Home Care Services

Through your Aged Care Package, we provide you with hours of support, so you can live well in your own home. 

Whether you need assistance with transportation, personal care, respite, or domestic work, we are here for you.

What Our Clients Say

  • I am incredibly thankful for the support I have received from JewishCare over the past 8 years.

    My Care Manager, Irina Stepanova, has helped me with everything I need. No matter the time, and no matter the issue I am facing.

    My support workers have helped me with shopping, transport, and cooking, all of which I can no longer do on my own.

    Maria Agaroskina

  • I wanted to say how much I appreciate the respite service I receive and how important it is to our lives.

    Without JewishCare’s help in caring for my husband Ivan, I could not go to work or attend medical appointments each week.

    It’s also a great social time for Ivan, particularly when he is able to attend the Synagogue with his carer.

    Jeskara Gordon

  • I don’t know what we would do without JewishCare. They are so caring and efficient as well as being flexible.

    Stella Wolfgang’s daughter Maryla

  • JewishCare sent a lovely occupational therapist who has made my house safe. Weekly visits from JewishCare’s home support staff enable me to stay here.

    Livia Erdos

  • In 1950 JewishCare helped me to migrate to Australia and gave me the opportunity to have a great life here. Then 5 years ago when my wife died JewishCare was there again for me. You never know when you may need help and I am very thankful to JewishCare.

    Jacob Binstok

  • As our needs have increased so has JewishCare’s help. Without JewishCare’s wonderful caring staff we would be in a home for the aged for sure.

    Charles Solomon

  • As I can’t go out by myself, I am so appreciative of JewishCare’s staff who help me to appointments and especially the Russian speaking worker who takes me to the beach or the park each week. That is so important to me.

Frequently Asked Questions

What services do you offer as an aged home care provider?

As an Aged Home Care Provider, we help you access an Aged Care Package that will meet your unique care needs. Your package provides you with a range of support services including personal care, domestic assistance, shopping, meal and food preparation, transportation, Allied Health support, and access to devices, OT Aids, and equipment to make you safer and more comfortable at your own home. 

To learn more about our home care package service inclusions, please reach out to us at 1300 133 660 or email hello@jewishcare.com.au

How do you assess the care needs of clients and create personalised care plans?

When you require a Home Care Package, an initial assessment will be undertaken by the aged care assessment team in your local health district. Once you have your package, you can bring it to us and we can help. When we first meet, our Assessment Officer will ask you some additional questions so they can gather in-depth information about your needs and goals. This information will be passed on to an Aged Care Caseworker who will develop a person-centred, holistic plan for you.

Is any financial assistance or government funding available to help cover the costs?

While the Australian Government subsidises a high portion of residential aged care costs, you may be required to contribute towards the cost of your care depending on your own income and assets. Fees and charges levied by residential aged care providers including JewishCare are government-regulated and vary depending on factors including whether you receive an aged pension or are a self-funded retiree. 

Access to your Aged Care Package is determined by Services Australia within Centrelink. They will determine whether you need to pay an income-tested fee and if so, how much this will be. For eligible holocaust survivors, home support under the Claims Conference is free.

Do you offer additional services, such as respite care or dementia care?

Respite care comes under your Aged Care Package and is available if you require it.

All of our staff at JewishCare are trained in dementia care. With a confirmed dementia diagnosis, we can apply for the dementia supplement that provides additional funds into your package.

Are your caregivers background-checked and insured?

All our caregiving staff are required to go through probity checks including reference checks at the point of their job offer and NSW police checks that must be repeated every 3 years. 

All our staff are covered by JewishCare insurance.
