The Benefits of Working with Home Care Assistance

As a Care Worker, you can make a real and meaningful difference to the lives of older Australians and their families. As a Care Worker with Home Care Assistance, not only will you enjoy an immensely rewarding work opportunity, but also flexibility in your schedule, a competitive salary and the opportunity to be part of a team that is the best of the best when it comes to home care provision.

What makes a great Care Worker?

Whilst a formal qualification in Aged Care ensures a baseline skill set, what sets our Care Workers apart are the special qualities that they bring to each unique situation. We believe great Care Workers are:
Respectful
Each individual deserves respect for who they are. An older person’s thoughts, feelings, and needs are valid, and their life experience far outweighs our own. Great Care Workers believe this innately, support independence and are rewarded internally as a result.
Patient
It’s easy to get frustrated when things don’t work as quickly or as easily as they used to – this is all part of the ageing process. Patience is a key trait in a great Care Worker, and ensures people feel supported as they are, that they are understood.
Kind
Nobody wants to feel like they are a burden. A great Care Worker is innately compassionate and caring, makes people feel safe, and supported through their actions as well as their words.
Flexible
People like to know their Care Worker will be there when they need them. Change can happen quickly, and the ability to be agile, and jump from one task to the next is a great skill in a Care Worker.
Good Companions
Care Workers are relied upon for companionship as much as personal care. This means both being able to chat freely, be a good listener and know when the right time is for both.
Trustworthy and Responsible
Things like managing medications and transportation of older people are serious matters that require due diligence to provide peace of mind to individuals and families.

DEDICATED TO AGEING WELL
Great service helpful staff that can't do enough for you and very reasonable fees
Thanks to the team at Home Care Assistance Melbourne team for taking such care and compassion. The team genuinely cares and are there to support our family. Thank you.
I looked long and thoroughly before I selected a care provider for my husband who has dementia. Being with Home Care Assistance for almost a year, has confirmed all my expectations. And more. ... As a carer I feel very supported by David and Meg. They are always available by phone or email, and this means a lot. But perhaps the best quality of their organisation is the high calibre and personalised choice of all the care givers they have provided for us - whether it be someone to spend time with my husband or someone to slash our overgrown yard.I have no hesitation in recommending Home Care Assistance - and, indeed, have already done so.Pamela Payneread more
Best Home Care Agency in South East Melbourne!Friendly ,Reliable, trusting in looking after your loved one.
The carers who looked after my elderly mother were without exception highly motivated, caring and compassionate. Not only was Mum looked after supremely well, she was provided with wonderful... companionship, a level of independence that would have been impossible without the help of her special carers, and a lot of fun. It is difficult to put into words how much this meant to her entire family! Keep up the good work.read more
The most helpful, caring, supportive and flexible team of people to assist with our elderly loved ones. I am so grateful for all you had done for my Mum.... ❤️❤️❤️read more
Really appreciate you guys helping my grandpa. Great service and staff.
Highly recommend the team at Home Care North Coast. Thank you for your attention and care. A+ advice and support.
High quality, unique approach with a customised care plan to promote independence and client satisfaction.
As a former employee of this company working in the office and as a Carer, I cannot recommend this company enough. They genuinely care for their clients and employees. I loved working there with... Jeremy and his staff, but unfortunately had to leave due to relocation. I would not hesitate to recommend HCA Syd East to all clients who are aged and/or with disabilities to engage this service provider for all their vital services to enable you to live and enjoy staying in your own home and to be as independent as possible. Jeremy and his staff really listen to your needs, goals and aspirations and do their very best to match you up with a compatible and suitably qualified Carer. Nothing is too much trouble.read more
Our family has benefited from the excellent support and services from David, Meg and the team at Home Care Assistance North Coast for the past couple of years. I had an extensive list of questions... when we were deciding which provider to go with. David answered promptly, and impressed me with his empathy, accessibility (available after hours, weekends), and ability to tailor a package to meet our particular needs. Add to that the best value for package dollars, and it was an easy decision to go with HCA North Coast. The staff employed by HCA North Coast have been excellent. David was able to source staff who were a good match for my Dad’s personality. As our needs evolved, it was easy to change any aspect of the care provided. I am very happy to recommend Home Care Assistance North Coast, for anyone looking for quality care for their loved one.read more
Home Care Assistance run by Jeremy and Samantha, a lovely couple with a caring attitude and a family themselves. After bringing my Mum to Sydney and needing expert help immediately I found HCA online... and liked their story. As soon as they walked in our door, we knew we were safe. I liked the fact that there was direct contact with the owners and nothing was too much trouble. The carers selected for Mum were perfect for her and very capable. Unfortunately Mum has had to move to a nursing home now but I would happily recommend this wonderful business to anyone with aged care needs.read more
Home Care Assistance are always available to help Mum and Dad. The carers are always lovely and polite. I feel very confident in recommending them to anyone looking for care for their loved ones.

I have recommended Home Care Assistance Newcastle to a few friends now. After having a bad experience with another service provider, Kerrie went above and beyond to help my mother, who has dementia,... with new services.
