Home Care in Newcastle
Also known as domiciliary care or in home care, our home care services represent the standard package that we provide to individuals over 65 and in need of care. As such, they are designed to ensure the highest standards of care, but without requiring your loved ones to leave the comforts of their own home.
We have a team of over 200 fully trained, experienced care professionals that ensure all the practical needs of a loved one are met. However, we also focus on ensuring that emotional needs are met as well, with a focus on compassion that includes companionship and conversation services. As such, our clients are treated with dignity and respect, and their loved ones can rest easy knowing as much.
The needs we care for can change from client to client. We offer a free consultation that allows us to complete a comprehensive care plan that ensures your priorities are met in a way that’s economic and mindful. From basic to personal needs, safety, grooming, meal preparation and feeding, bathroom assistance and more, we can include it all in the care plan.

Respite Care in Newcastle
Our professional caregivers are able to provide home care services to Newcastle clients as and when they are needed. As such, we can provide comprehensive, all day care, every day, every week of the year. However, we also work with primary caregivers who have taken on the responsibility of caring for their loved ones.
Home Caring understands the challenges and stresses of becoming a primary caregiver. It’s a demanding job, one that takes effort, dedication, and a lot of time. If you aren’t careful, it is possible to become overwhelmed and to suffer from caregiver burnout. As such, we’ve developed time-flexible respite care services that can help you take the time you need. We can work to your schedule, whether you need us for an hour every day or a day every week or more. Whatever your needs are, we can work with them.
We also ensure peace of mind by maintaining the standards of care that you have established in our own services. With your help, we can better understand the needs, expectations, schedules, and routines of you and your loved one to make sure that the transition is as smooth as can be.

Home Caring also offers specialist services for those who have needs or barriers to independence that other home care teams may be unable to provide.

Besides our bespoke care plan, we also provide assistance specific to individuals living with disability. For instance, we can help you access and apply for the NDIS funds that you may need to ensure the highest quality of care. We have also helped clients gain access to community support and to Supported Independent Living services. If our clients have other support providers, we will work with them to keep a high standard of care throughout.
Supported Independent Living Disability Accommodation
Those living with disability may not always be able to live securely in their own home. Some aren’t safe enough, or haven’t been adapted to their needs, adding more challenges to their lifestyle. As such, Home Caring could offer a better solution through our Supported Living Home, the first among several disability friendly accommodations we intend to build.
Our Supported Independent Living Home has been designed with the assistance of clients and their families as consultants. As such, we’ve created a space that offers all-day access to support within an environment catered to the safety, security, and accessibility needs of our clients.
Our disability accommodation is staffed by a team of qualified, compassionate caregivers and support staff. They provide all the same assistance that comes with our disability care services. However, we also offer access to further disability management services, access to vehicles and transportation help, access to occupational therapy services, and more.
