Maintain an active social life in and outside your home with Ozcare. We service Brisbane and a number of locations around Queensland.

Social Support

Maintain an active social life in and outside your home

Keeping in touch with family and friends, and remaining a part of your local community, can be more difficult if you aren’t able to drive or don’t feel up to leaving the house.

To maintain your social life, we offer a range of social support services at your home or in your local community. We can:

  • Visit your home to spend time together, having a cup of tea and a chat or playing a game
  • Help you to shop for food or other things
  • Support you to find groups with similar interests to you, such as a bridge club or hobby group
  • Take you to visit friends or family that live nearby

Our social support service can be used for a short time or we can make regular visits weekly or monthly. You can also change the frequency of your services as your needs change.

To provide consistent personalised care, we make sure that you continue to see familiar faces for each of your appointments so you can get to know your carers and feel comfortable with them.

You can use our social support services in conjunction with any other services that we offer.

Costs & Eligibility

Our home aged care services are available to seniors over the age of 65, (or over 50 years for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders).

The cost of your services will be determined by your eligibility for the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) or a Home Care Package (HCP). Depending on your circumstances you may not need to pay anything at all.

If you’re not eligible for CHSP or a home care package, you can still access services through privately funded services, where you meet the full cost of care yourself.

Availability

We provide services all over Queensland, from the Gold Coast to Far North Queensland. Find your nearest branch and the services they offer using our ‘locate a service’ finder.

Our approach to home care

Ozcare’s home care services are designed to help you keep living in your home for longer. With a personalised care plan created together with you and your family, we help you to become more independent with the aim of reducing your need for ongoing services, or the need to access higher care services such as complex nursing.

With 20 years’ experience in aged care, our team of carers, nurses, occupational therapists and other allied health professionals offer a complete suite of services in the comfort of your own home.
