Home Care Assistance Newcastle understands how important the first 72 hours following a hospital stay are. It can be a time of great change for an individual returning home, often requiring adjustment to previous daily habits, new medications, meal regimens, rehabilitation exercises and more.
Our specially trained Care Workers will provide transport home from hospital and essential support during a time when a person can feel vulnerable and anxious. Once an individual is settled in at home, our Care Workers provide ongoing monitoring, reminders and important emotional support to help facilitate a successful recovery.

Our focus is on creating close, trusted relationships with families and designing personalised plans that evolve to meet the needs of everyone over time. Paying for personalised care can be more affordable than you think!
Personal care and assistance can be covered under government programmes. Please note, there may be a gap and small contribution to pay, as the Australian Government may not fund the full cost of the program.
