Our approach ensures that your care is not just provided but is personalised, not just received but resonates with your unique needs and preferences.

How to choose a carer.

The process of selecting a care worker is a personal and significant process. It requires a harmonious blend of objective criteria and subjective elements that ensure the care worker aligns with your individual needs, preferences, and lifestyle.

Start by clearly defining your specific care needs. This could range from assistance with day-to-day tasks to more specialised care for health conditions, or any other services. A clear understanding of your needs is the foundation for selecting an appropriate care worker.

Ensure the carer possesses the required qualifications, training, and experience. Evaluate their skill set against your identified needs to ensure a match.

Meet potential carers to assess compatibility. It’s important that you feel comfortable, understood, and respected by the carer. Consider their personality, communication style, and their ability to connect with you on a personal level..

Ensure the availability of your care worker aligns with your schedule and needs. Consider their willingness and ability to adapt to changes or emergencies.

What matters most when choosing a carer?

When selecting a carer, the intersection of professional competency and personal compatibility is always crucial. Here are some important things you need to consider when choosing your carers.

Only an Approved Home Care Package Provider is able to host a Home Care Package. Approved Providers have had to become registered with the Department of Health. They will have satisfied both legal and social requirements in order to administer packages on behalf of consumers.

Whereas, a Service Provider is any company that delivers the actual support or hours of care to you or to your loved one, such as cleaning, gardening, personal care, podiatry etc.

Some Home Care Package Providers are also service providers and they employ their own carers. Certain Providers will suggest you only use their own services, but it is expected that all Providers should allow you to use external suppliers as well.

At Let’s Get Care, we have the largest list of care providers in Australia which is growing every day. At Let’s Get Care, we don’t lock you into using our own staff at inflated costs, instead we broker our home care services nationally. This means you have the freedom to choose and find the care worker right for your situation, local to you.

As well as our large list of suppliers for you to choose from, we also allow you to bring your own care workers onboard as long as they can pass background checks. You can find carers and support workers to use through your Home Care Package. At Let’s Get Care, you aren’t limited in choice and we support you to find the best care provider at the best price, to suit your needs. We want you to find the best care worker for you.

Once you connect with your care provider, you can contact them to ensure they are able to cater to your individual needs and cultural preferences, you can then agree to rates, hours and services that work for you both. If you are making the switch, you are also able to keep on carers you had previously, and we will help facilitate that transition.

Yes, your family member can manage your Home Care Package with your consent. In this arrangement, they can take on the responsibility of making decisions about your care. It can be a collaborative effort where you and your loved ones work together, ensuring that your care is tailored to your specific needs and preferences while offering them a hands-on role in your care journey.
