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.

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.
