Home and personal care

A little help can go a long way

We’re here to support your loved one – whatever that might mean for them. It’s all about helping them achieve an independent lifestyle and maintain their wellbeing. You can engage us for one particular service or a combination of many; as part of a government-funded or private care package.

Home and personal care

How we can help

Housework: We can take care of the washing, ironing or vacuuming – or whatever else your loved one needs – giving them more time to enjoy life without the tiring chores. 

Shopping: If getting to and from the supermarket is taking its toll on your loved one, a Benetas carer can either join them or perform the entire trip for them (including carrying and unpacking).

Cooking and diet management: Does your loved one have special dietary needs? Is cooking nutritious meals becoming too much? If so, Benetas Home Care can help plan and prepare healthy home-cooked meals.

Transport: We understand that you can’t always be there to take your loved one to and from appointments and events. So why not let Benetas Home Care lend a hand?

Day to day tasks: Tasks such as showering, dressing, grooming and toileting are basic human needs that not everyone can manage alone. Whatever your loved one requires, Benetas Home Care can help.

Companionship: Whether it’s a simple chat, short stroll, game of cards or a cup of tea, we believe companionship is often key to an older person’s vitality.

Our home care team

Every member of our personal home care team has been carefully selected to ensure they embody the Benetas values of respect, responsibility, community and spirit. They also all:

  • Have the experience and qualifications to give your loved one the best possible care – including a Certificate III in Aged or Community Care
  • Continually improve and expand their skillset through regular, ongoing training
  • Maintain up-to-date police checks   
  • Undergo a thorough background and reference check (before joining our team)

Many of our personal carers also speak foreign languages and understand the sensitivities of different cultures.

Although we believe every Benetas carer is special, we also know that some carers will be a better match for your loved one than others. That’s why we go to great lengths to meet your preferences as closely as possible – taking into account gender, personality, ethnicity, language, special skills and more.

How much does it cost?

Government funded package: Although most costs are covered, some costs may apply. These are calculated based on the income of the person receiving the services. But rest assured that you can’t be refused a government home care package if you’re unable to pay.

Privately funded service: You determine the types of services and begin receiving our services almost immediately on an hourly rate arrangement (no formal assessment required).
