Home Care Packages tailored so you can live your best life in the comfort of your own home.
There are few things in life more sacred to us than our homes. They are the first place we want to return to, and the last place we want to leave. Extending the time we live in them is a priority for many older Australians, and Home Care packages are often the best way to achieve this.
BASScare’s Home Care package strikes the perfect balance between choice and support so you can live your life the way you want to. Our aim is to empower senior Australians to feel safe, secure and comfortable in their own homes with a level of service tailored to them.
To this end, our Home Care packages are consumer-directed; our flexible options are designed to cater to your needs and desires, whether that’s temporary assistance or a long-term solution.
Home Care involves a level of service tailored to the individual and delivered in their home. What that help looks like is different for everyone depending on your circumstances. It may simply involve a check-in from a care worker once a week, a hand with groceries and shopping, or more comprehensive support for complex needs.
Whatever your situation, BASScare has a Home Care package that can keep you safe and comfortable in your own home for longer.
