Your in-home care and support are tailored specifically based on your needs, preferences and circumstance.

Our team will work with you to develop a Care Plan to ensure you receive the services that are important to you. And to assist you to safely maintain your independence at home.

Understanding your individual situation

    Understanding your individual situation

    your health, capabilities and circumstances

  • You Support Needed
    Finding out what support you would like to enable you to remain living at home

    You may also like to involve family members in this discussion and where appropriate, we can work in consultation with your GP, allied health or hospital staff.

  • Government Funding Eligibility
    Discussing your eligibility for government funding.

    There are different programs through which it is possible to receive government subsidised care – such as Home Care Packages, DVA Community Nursing and Veterans Home Care – and depending on the program, an assessment is often required to determine eligibility and service needs. We can assist you to navigate this part of the process.*NB. Even if you are not entitled to government funding we can still provide privately-funded care.

  • Your Individual Care Plan
    Tailoring your individual Care Plan.

    Our Coordinator will work with you to develop a Care Plan to meet your needs and arrange appropriate carers of your choice. This will also include scheduling of home visits so you know what will happen and when.

  • Home Assessment
    Home Assessment

    As part of our assessment processes your RSL LifeCare At Home coordinator will review your home and identify any potential risks to your safety, such as trip hazards to prevent falls, thereby avoiding possible hospital admission. Through our Get READY (Restorative care) program we may also recommend some strengthening and balance exercises to give you more confidence with mobility.

    Based on your particular circumstances your carer may also suggest certain aids or other equipment which may help you move safely around the home, or continue to do tasks that you may be struggling with.

    You’re not alone

    In order to live safely and independently at home without worry there is also a range of personal alarms, monitored “smart home” safety devices (such as motion sensors), telephone support and emergency response services available to you.

    This technology is beneficial for those who;

    • Live alone
    • Are at risk of falling
    • Have dementia, epilepsy and chronic diseases such as asthma, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer
    • Would simply like peace of mind for themselves and their family should an unanticipated event happen
  • Daily Health Monitoring
    Daily Health Monitoring

    Giving you greater control over your health and wellbeing

    Through technology called Telemonitoring, information can be collected from medical devices in your home such as weighing scales, thermometers, blood pressure monitors, pulse oximeters and blood glucose monitors. These daily readings are automatically sent to your professional carer, allowing them to remotely monitor chronic conditions in real time such as diabetes, asthma, hypertension, congestive heart failure (CHF) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Based on your readings, your carer can take necessary actions or advice to improve your health outcomes.

    The benefits of Telemonitoring are;

    • Your health information, with your permission, can be securely shared with family members and loved ones as well as other health providers such as your GP to simplify communication and collaboration
    • Daily monitoring and real-time readings allow for regular, close observation and maintenance of your health
    • You become actively engaged in your own wellbeing
