Private care is funded by individuals without the benefit of government assistance. From 1 July 2014, access to community aged care supports has become 'means-tested', reducing the appropriateness of funded community aged care for part-pensioners and self-funded retirees. In many cases if you are a part-pensioner or self-funded retiree, accessing private care can be more cost effective, and more flexible, than a subsidised home care package.
Private care organisations can provide care services as and when needed. There are no waiting lists and you will not pay for services you do not want or need.
Private care services can include personal care, assistance with preparing meals, help around the home, right through to 24 hour a day in-home support.
