Simplifying home care.

Understanding Australia’s aged care system can be confusing. There is so much information to learn and absorb, and it can be difficult to make sense of it all.

That’s why we’ve developed our FREE Demystifying Home Care Guide, to simplify the information for you and your family – outlining everything you need to know about accessing home care services and government funding.

We hop in the car and Michelle asks me where I want to go. It’s wonderful to get out and about, having coffee and shopping and getting to see people. I’m not a homebody. My husband Des is 86 and cares for me a lot of the time, so I’m pretty sure he appreciates having his own space when I’m out, too.

Baptistcare helps such a lot. They’re marvellous, like a huge family, I just didn’t realise there was so much help available.
