Name: Andrew Oxley
Sunshine Coast Home Caring delivers high quality care to seniors and people living with disabilities on the Sunshine Coast and its surrounding communities.
The business is headed up by Andrew Oxley, a Sunshine Coast local with many years of health care experience in Australia and abroad. Formerly a project manager for a health clinic scheme run by the National Health Service in the UK, Andrew migrated to Australia in 2016 and worked with an aged care start-up – a move that ignited his passion for providing home care.
Andrew started Sunshine Coast Home Caring in June, 2019, and has since built up a truly exceptional team of highly experienced case managers, support workers and office staff. As a registered NDIS and home care package provider, we are passionate about putting our clients before tasks, and ensuring they receive the care they deserve.

In Australia, home care is partially subsidised by the government to make it more affordable. If it is within your budget, you are expected to contribute a certain amount to your home care, called a ‘basic daily fee’. If your income is over the maximum amount of income for a full pensioner, you will also be asked to pay an income-tested care fee.
