Did you know Silver Chain offers home care services on a private, fee-paying basis?
With Silver Chain’s private services, you can access home care services right away – there’s no waiting list and no need for a Government assessment or subsidy.
Silver Chain Executive General Manager Social Care, Melanie Kiely, said private home care services are available to people of any age for any period of time and are designed to help in a range of different situations.
“Those who benefit most from private home care services are people who need help right away because there’s no waiting for an assessment for Government subsidised care,” Melanie explained.
Our private home care services can help you with:
Short term care whilst your carer or family are away
Getting back on your feet after a recent fall or hospital admission
Additional care on top of what is included in your Government subsidised care.
For Belinda, a two-week holiday, with her young family was made much easier knowing her mum Lesley* was in safe hands receiving Silver Chain’s private services.
“As soon as I knew we were going on holiday I contacted Silver Chain to see what options were available. I needed peace of mind to know we’d be able to go away and mum would be in safe hands,” Belinda said.
“I learned that Silver Chain offers short term assistance on a fee-for-service basis. It was exactly what mum needed while we were away. It was a relief, and I was able to relax with my husband and kids.”
