We get many calls asking us how much private home care costs. The simple answer is that it can cost as much or as little as you want. Typically rates can be charged by the hour or by a specific block of time such as overnight care and 24-hour, or live-in care.
The amount you pay can also depend on the type of care you need. For example, hiring a Registered Nurse will cost more than hiring a Carer. We do however recommend that you discuss your needs with a range of companies to ensure you are being listened to and that you end up with the most appropriate service for you.
With private nursing home care, you, the client, are in complete control. You can change the amount of time your Carer spends with you at any time (usually with some notice of course).
There are many home care businesses in Australia and rates can vary widely. At Luxe Care we say that you get what you pay for. Some companies charge quite modest fees and you may be required to do all the work, usually online. Giving feedback may be challenging and there may or may not be a Registered Nurse supervising the care.
At Luxe Care we tailor the care specifically to your needs and can provide you with a customized quote typically the same day you give a call. So please get in touch. We would love to help you.
