  • Happy to 102
    Featuring Dr. Milana Boukhman Trounce
    Happy to 102 (Available on Amazon.com.au) is the first book in our senior wellness series and focuses on healthy longevity, which we define as remaining healthy, active, sharp and happy throughout an extensive lifespan.
    We are living longer than ever. Centenarians are the fastest growing segment of our population. Before we know it, 102 just may become the new 75. As lifespan increases, we also want to see health-span increase. Happy to 102 lays out all those factors-diet, exercise, sociability, mental challenge, sense of purpose-that make the difference not only in how long we live but in how well we live. Based on groundbreaking scientific research of the longest living people on Earth, Happy to 102 spells out precisely what it takes to delay or escape Alzheimer’s and other chronic diseases, slow down the process of ageing and enjoy better health in our senior years. With an emphasis on ageing in place with in-home care, Happy to 102 unlocks the secrets to longevity and inspires us to live happier, healthier lives at any age.
  • The Brain Boost: A Practical Guide to Brain Health
    The Brain Boost: A Practical Guide to Brain Health (Available on Amazon.com.au) is the seventh book in our senior wellness series. Is it possible to rewire the brain to enhance cognitive health as we age?
    The Brain Boost: A Practical Guide to Brain Health draws on cutting-edge research from the fields of cognitive science, neuropsychology and medicine to show that anyone can boost his or her brain performance through lifestyle changes. Full of fascinating studies—from explorations of the hippocampi of London taxi drivers to the role of the emotional tone of music in enhancing cognitive function in those with Alzheimer’s—The Brain Boost is a highly engaging window into the world of neuroplasticity, or the brain’s ability to reorganise itself throughout an individual’s lifespan to compensate for injury and disease. The Brain Boost offers practical, everyday tips to support brain health and longevity with a healthy diet, regular physical exercise, socialisation and challenging cognitive stimulation. Combating the idea that cognitive decline is an inevitable part of ageing, this book is a must read for adults of any age eager to harness the power of neuroplasticity to enhance their mental acuity and wellbeing.
  • The Senior Sleep Solution
    The Senior Sleep Solution (Available on Amazon.com.au) is the sixth book in our senior wellness series and focuses on the common causes for sleep disturbance and provides methods to obtaining more restful nights. As we age, our sleep patterns change. Older adults
    tend to have more difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep than their younger selves. Quality sleep, however, is essential to our physical health and mental well-being at any age. The Senior Sleep Solution explores the common cases of chronic sleep disturbance and provides practical guidance for seniors and care workers alike on improving sleep quality and reducing sleep disruption. The strategies presented in The Senior Sleep Solution are based on well-researched and easily applied methods and include specific steps for seniors with dementia and various sleep disorders. Armed with the knowledge, families can be proactive about achieving the ever important good night’s rest.
  • Mind Over Gray Matter
    Mind Over Gray Matter: A New Approach to Dementia Care (Available on Amazon.com.au) is the fifth book in our award-winning senior wellness series. Dementia affects us all. Nearly half of individuals aged 85 and over are afflicted with the disease. As lifespans
    increase, Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia have become the most significant global health challenge of the 21st century. Mind Over Gray Matter represents a new approach to dementia care that offers practical guidance on caring for an individual with dementia as well as evidence-based techniques to improve quality of life and slow the progression of the disease. Armed with this knowledge, families can provide the support and resources their loved ones need to live safely and comfortably at home.
  • The Five Senses
    The Five Senses (Available on Amazon.com.au) is the fourth book in our award-winning senior wellness series and provides information, insights and practical advice to help older adults cope with these changes in sensory awareness. Our senses – sight, smell,
    taste, touch and hearing – are our primary mechanisms for interacting with the world around us. As we age, our senses will gradually decline and these sensory deficits can fundamentally change how we interact with our environment. Managing this decline is a crucial component of happy and healthy ageing. The Five Senses provides a detailed overview of the changes we experience in our senses as we age and offers practical guidance on managing this evolution for improved quality of life. Armed with this knowledge, older adults can maintain independence and live comfortably in their own homes as they age.
  • The Handbook of Live-in Care
    The Handbook of Live-in Care (Available on Amazon.com.au) is the second book in our senior wellness series and offers practical, how-to advice on caring for an ageing parent or loved one. Age may be “just a number” for many people, but it also brings
    very real daily challenges for a number of older adults. Retaining independence and living in their own homes is integral to the majority of older adults’ sense of well-being. However, frailty, illness and forgetfulness can make living at home difficult. The Handbook of Live-In Care gives care workers – usually an adult son or daughter – practical, how to advice on caring for an elderly loved one. From understanding the psychology of home-bound adults to tips for assisting with everyday needs, The Handbook of Live-In Care offers the first definitive guide to maximising the quality of life for an older adult.
  • From Hospital to Home Care
    From Hospital to Home Care (Available on Amazon.com.au) is the third book in our senior wellness series and offers practical advice on how to help make the transition from hospital to home smooth for your loved one. The post-hospitalisation experience
    is a source of tremendous anxiety for patients and their families who are faced with coordinating home care after a hospital discharge. From Hospital to Home Care provides a comprehensive overview of the challenges and resources associated with each step in the transition from hospital to home, explaining the discharge process from an inpatient hospital stay, common issues associated with specific medical conditions, the unique needs of a recently hospitalised patients, and the importance of home care in patient outcomes and quality of life. From Hospital to Home Care arms families with the knowledge necessary to navigate the discharge process and arrange quality care for those patients who wish to remain in their homes./div>

Frequently Asked Questions

The following are some of the most frequently asked questions by families in search of senior care for their ageing parent, grandparent or loved one. If you do not see your question listed below, please do not hesitate to contact us directly where a Care Manager will be more than happy to assist you.
What kind of care services do you offer?

Home Care Assistance offers home care on a daily and hourly basis. For more information visit our Care Services page.

In what areas of care do Home Care Assistance Carers specialise?

Our Carers are experienced and trained in the full array of specialised care requirements that commonly affect older adults. These include:

  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Dementia
  • Cancer
  • Rehabilitation
  • Orthopaedics
  • Stroke and other Neurological conditions
  • Palliative care
Why is Home Care Assistance good for older Australians?

Our experienced Carers provide safety, support and companionship.  They are highly skilled and specially trained in emotional support, nutritional guidance, fall prevention, brain-sharpening activities and even light physical activity. We go to great lengths to match the perfect Carer with the individual based on personality, life experience and commonalities.

What is Home Care?

Home care provides older Australians with one-on-one assistance from a trained carer in the comfort of his or her own home. With assistance from a Carer, seniors are able to live at home independently and maintain their quality of life. The personal attention they receive vastly improves their safety, health and happiness.

What is the difference between 24-hour care and hourly care?

With our 24-hour care service, Carers come in shifts and stay with the client around-the-clock, ready to assist with all activities of daily living and ensuring safety all hours of the day. 24/7 care provides service for those people who require close supervision at all times.

Hourly Care is exactly that care by the hour. From a
simple companion visit to transport to your GP or even meal assistance we can help with all areas of your daily activities.

What does it mean when you say “lifestyle” care?

By remaining at home, older family members are able to maintain the lifestyle they have been accustomed to despite needing some extra support. Staying at home with their own possessions and familiar surroundings, they are able to visit the same shops, restaurants, neighbours, parks and other familiar places that are known and loved.

Why is Home Care Assistance good for families?

Home Care Assistance brings peace of mind to families because your loved one is cared for by the best, most reliable Carers. On call to serve you 24/7, we eliminate the effort and worry of finding, screening, paying for and managing a Carer, therefore reducing stress for the whole family. Having an in-home Carer allows family members to enjoy quality time with their loved ones, instead of focusing on stressful day to day needs.

Do you have any brochures or videos to read/watch so that I can learn more about in-home care?

Yes, we have many resources on how in-home care can support a number of situations, including acute or chronic conditions. You will also find information about our programs, such as our Balanced Care Method, Cognitive Therapeutics Method and more.

How can I get more information?

If you would like more information contact your local office for a free in-home consultation or to speak to a professional Client Care Manager.

You can also download one of our Care Guides below to read more about our services. Should you prefer to be sent a printed copy, please contact your local office.

I have questions – is there a real person I can speak with?

Absolutely. Members of the Home Care Assistance
care team are available to speak with you at any time.
Please contact your local office by searching here.

Is there a Home Care Assistance location near me?

Yes, Home Care Assistance has locations serving
most regions of Australia. To find a location near you,
click here.

What is respite care and how can it help family Carers?

Often, a family member or friend cares for an ageing loved one, but performing this role can add stress and pressure on the family relationships. Respite Care is temporary or hourly care designed to give family Carers a much needed break so they can take care of other priorities in their life and prevent burnout.

Home Care Assistance Carers provide excellent help at home. Can they assist in locations besides seniors’ home residence?

Yes. We can visit people anywhere they need care. During hospital stays, our hospital care team can provide around-the-clock companionship and monitoring for safety.

Many residents of Aged Care facilities also hire Home Care Assistance Carers to provide the personal one- to-one attention they deserve.

What happens if the assigned Carer is sick and can’t work?

If your Carer becomes ill or is unable to keep the scheduled visit, our staffing team will work to find you a qualified substitute carer for that time.

Do you have a service contract I have to sign?

There’s no service contract with Home Care Assistance. That means you can use our services for as little or as long as you need and with 100% satisfaction.

How does Home Care Assistance screen and hire Carers?

Home Care Assistance interviews 25 Carers for every one Carer that we hire. We start by requiring a minimum of two years of verifiable experience with excellent references.

Next, we conduct thorough background checks including local and national criminal records, driving record checks and verify eligibility for employment.

Home Care Assistance Carers are covered by workers’ compensation insurance.

How do you supervise Carers?

You don’t just hire a carer. You work with a full Care Team to ensure the highest standards of care are met. Before beginning home care services, the care team creates a schedule and a plan that covers all aspects of appropriate care, and the Carer is fully briefed on the plan. A Client Care Manager will also make regular Quality Assurance visits to ensure the quality of care is exceptional and make changes as needed.

What’s unique about the service provided by Home Care Assistance?

Our rigorous Carer selection process includes an exclusive psychologist-generated test that measures honesty and conscientiousness. We also have a PhD-developed Home Care Assistance program that is used to train Carers with proven techniques and skills for improving and prolonging seniors’ quality of life.

Our emphasis on providing long-term care from consistent, expertly matched Carers ensures quality in care and maintains familiarity and emotional stability.

Home Care Assistance specialises in 24 hour care, with Carers providing assistance, monitoring and companionship around-the-clock.

Our proprietary Balanced Care Method™ is a holistic approach to care based on the scientifically studied lifestyles of the longest living individuals in the world. Our Cognitive Therapeutics Method™ engages clients in fun and effective activities designed to promote long-term brain health.

What makes Home Care Assistance Carers such great Carers?

We start by attracting and hiring the best, most experienced Carers in the area. We screen them with the most comprehensive tests in the industry. But we don’t leave it at that. Home Care Assistance has developed exclusive training programs to provide nutrition and longevity-promoting techniques. We even have a monthly newsletter that keeps all of our Carers up-to-date on the latest insights in the home care industry.

Great service helpful staff that can't do enough for you and very reasonable fees
We have been with Home Care assistance for last three years. I am impressed by the diversity of the services, they provide.I had few carers but the carer, Shweta, has been coming to us for last two... years, has been a Godsend. She pushes him to do the things which i am unable to. It’s a compliment to Homecare assistance to employ professionals of that standard.No matter what problem I incur, all I have to do is to ring the agency..The eagerness and understanding towards the need of the client is amazing.I would recommend Homecare assistance to anyone and everyone, who requires assistance in all aspects of life.In my case i am grateful of the help i am getting to look after my husband.read more
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
Great team
High quality, unique approach with a customised care plan to promote independence and client satisfaction.
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
So blessed. Such a wonderful team to take care of me, keeping my life simple and enabling the very best I could wish for. Thank you, Meg and Dave!
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. Kerrie, Mark and their team are compassionate, professional and genuinely care about their clients.read more
Really appreciate you guys helping my grandpa. Great service and staff.
Dave and the team go above and beyond to ensure your loved one receives the best possible care
Jeremy is a really good man, he has fantastic family values and cares for everyone. I would definitely recommend Health Care Assistance to help you and your family
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
Great service looking after my nan. Thanks so much guys.
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
highly recommend the team at Home Care Newcastle - Thank you again team.
Home Care Assistance North Coast has really put the CARE back into my aged care experience for my mother.Right from the beginning communication with management (David and Meg) has been excellent... with all of my requests and questions answered patiently, promptly and cheerfully.Due to Home Care Assistance's policy of tender care my mother has had hand massages, foot baths and massages, diversional therapy involving music and art, poetry and encouraging Mum to interact positively.Domestic tasks are attended to cheerfully.Blue ribbon service and red carpet treatment for their valued clients. Highly recommended!read more
We were very happy with Home Care Assistance's and dealing with staff was a pleasure. Highly recommend.
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.
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
