Private Home Care

Paying privately for in-home care

Most people want nothing more than to maintain their independence and live in their own homes for as long as possible. With the wait time for a Home Care Package estimated at 12-18 months, many older South Australians are choosing to privately fund their care through My Care Solution.

Paying for your in-home care services privately means you only pay for as much or as little help as you need. Charged at an hourly rate with no lock-in contracts or commitments, you can start receiving your private home care services as soon as you need them.

My Care Solution provides a full range of in-home support services including 24 hour care, overnight care, nursing, respite, recovery care, personal assistance, social support, housekeeping and transport.

Our Client Care Coordinators are contactable 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. If you have a good idea of what kind of private care you want, or if you’re not sure where to start, chatting with our friendly team is the first step.

You can contact us today to get the ball rolling. If you live in Metropolitan Adelaide or the Adelaide Hills, contact our office on (08) 8331 9922. If you live in the Fleurieu Peninsula region, contact your local office on (08) 8552 9840.

Step 2: Meet a Client Care Coordinator

The next step is to book a complimentary care consultation with your Client Care Coordinator. We want to get to know you beyond your care needs and fully understand your requirements. Your Client Care Coordinator will also take the time to find out as much as possible about you, your interests and your lifestyle so that we can match you to the most compatible care staff.

Care consultations are available around-the-clock and can be booked online.

Step 3: Start receiving your services

Great! You’ve completed the care consultation and now your Client Care Coordinator has a thorough understanding of you and your care needs. We will create a tailored care plan and select the most compatible care staff to deliver your services. Our care staff are directly recruited, highly qualified and continuously trained to the same My Care Solution standard, so you can rest assured that any staff member chosen by your Client Care Coordinator is of the highest quality.

With no lock-in contracts or commitments, you can receive as much or as little help as you need. Your Client Care Coordinator will be on-call to help you arrange services when you need us. Alternatively, you may prefer to have a regular schedule of services which we can certainly assist you with.
