As your local community organisation, Holdsworth has a long history delivering quality programs and services to seniors throughout the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney. In addition to our current services for seniors we are now able to support people with Home Care Packages.

Home Care Packages are specifically for frail elderly people who require a higher level of support to help them to continue living independently in their own homes. Our customised person-centred service is a natural fit with Home Care Packages and will enable us to support people with increasingly complex needs.

For some this might be just the necessities of daily living, including in home care wuch as personal care and cleaning, but for others, getting out for a chat and meaningful social interaction may be much more life affirming and a better use of rationed government funding. Whatever the case, Holdsworth is here to listen and work with you as your Personal Adviser.

What is a Home Care Package?
A Home Care Package is an allocation of funds provided by the government that enables you to purchase products and aged care services that help you stay at home and live a happy and independent life. Packages are flexible and can be designed to meet your requirements today and adapt into the future.

With increasing complexity in the sector, Holdsworth is here to help you navigate through the system and make sure you stay completely in control as to how you utilise potential services.

Services we provide
Holdsworth supports seniors and frail elderly people to remain connected socially and engaged with the community. Great food, accessible transport and fun activities are our tools of trade. Our direct services range from exercise programs to keep you moving, through to support for people living with dementia.

We can coordinate in home help such as housework, personal care including bathing and dressing, nursing care, maintenance and modifications to your home, counselling and other allied health support.

Costs
Holdsworth is committed to keeping its costs low so that you will have more resources to spend to meet the support you want. Therefore, the Holdsworth fee, from your Care Package funds, is set at just 20% to cover administration and your Personal Adviser’s time.

Your Personal Adviser will work with you to put together a care plan that best fits your needs and budget. Once your plan is established, your Personal Adviser will be available to provide advice or help you make changes to your plan as your needs or choices change.

Under the Home Care Package program, activities may be directly funded by the Government or could require a co-payment by you. Additional services can be paid for privately if desired.  We guarantee that Holdsworth will be transparent with regards to your personal budget and how your money is allocated.
