What is home care?

Home care is help and support in your home by qualified and professional carers. A home care plan is developed together with you, to meet your needs and to help you achieve your lifestyle goals at home. It can be government funded through My Aged Care or privately funded. We provide home care support throughout Adelaide and the Fleurieu Peninsula. Live the life you want to live, comfortably and safely at home, knowing that help is only a phone call away.

Funding Options

You may be able to access St Louis Home Care services in Adelaide for free or subsidised under the Australian Government My Aged Care scheme. Here's how:

Federally funded

Step 1

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. 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;

Level 1-2 low care packages or

Level 3-4 high-care packages.

Step 2

Meet with St Louis - We can come to you!

So that we can get to know you and learn about your specific care needs, our care coordinators can visit your home in Adelaide or the Fleurieu Peninsula to meet you and your family members or friends and talk about how we might be able to help you. Our experienced team of care coordinators will answer any questions you or your family may have.

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 that helps you to live the life you want at home. Our home care services can commence immediately once we receive your approval to proceed.

Privately funded

Not eligible for federally-funded home care services? You can still access St Louis Home Care services as a privately-funded client through our innovative St Louis Lifestyle Programme.

St Louis lifestyles is a fee-for-service care programme whereby home care 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 home care services you need as soon as you need them.
