Stay at home and live life to the fullest
Growing older doesn't have to mean moving into a nursing home. St Louis Home Care is a dedicated team of carers who travel throughout Adelaide and Victor Harbor to help older South Australians with as much or as little care as they need:
- Cleaning, gardening, laundry services
- Transport and social outings
- Personal and hygiene care
- Meal preparation and cooking
- Nursing care and medication support
- Allied health and nursing services, such as physiotherapy, podiatry and wound management)
- Mobility and sight-impairment aids, such as walkers, wheelchairs, lifters
Because we know a little extra help goes a long way towards keeping you independent and at-home for as long as you'd like to be there.
You may be able to access St Louis Home Care services for free, or heavily discounted, under the Australian Government My Aged Care scheme. Here's how:
- Find out if you're eligible
To be eligible for subsidised homecare, you must first be assessed by the Australian Government Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). This straightforward process can be easily arranged by asking your GP or hospital discharge unit for an ACAT Assessment. If you're eligible, your ACAT Assessment report will detail the level of government-subsidised homecare you're entitled to, either:
- Low-care – level 1-2 packages
- High-care – level 3-4 packages
- LGBTIQ-specific packages
- Meet with St Louis - we can come to you!
So that we can get to know you and learn about your specific care needs, we like to meet all of our clients interested in our homecare services. Our Care Coordinators are only too happy to come and visit your home to meet you and your family members or friends and talk about how we might be able to help you. And of course, our experienced team of Care Coordinators are always on-hand to field any questions if you'd like to give us a call on 8332 0950 during business hours.
Once you're happy to proceed, we'll need a copy of your ACAT Assessment so we can start working with you to develop a program of care most suited to your needs and subsidy level. Our homecare services can commence immediately once we receive your approval to proceed.
Not eligible for federally-funded homecare services? Never mind, you can still access St Louis Home Care services as a privately-funded client through our innovative St Louis Lifestyles Programme.
St Louis Lifestyles is a fee-for-service care programme whereby homecare services can be arranged on an as-needs basis. Which means, no ongoing costs for you.
You don't need an ACAT Assessment to access St Louis Lifestyles and there is no eligibility criteria. There are also no waiting lists, so we can start delivering our homecare services you need as soon as you need them.
