What is Medication Assistance?
At Let's Get Care, we understand that managing medications can become a complex task as we age. That's why we're dedicated to providing a helping hand and ensuring the health and well-being of you and your loved ones. We believe that every person deserves the peace of mind that comes with proper medication prompts.
What’s included in a medication prompting service?
If this service is needed, when you sign with us, you will be able to have someone visit you at home and help you or your loved one receive your medication. The service is designed to aid older Australians who might struggle with self-managing their medication due to memory issues or physical limitations. It helps to manage schedules, reducing the risk of missed doses and improving overall health outcomes.

When to consider medication prompts.

Medication prompting is designed to ensure that medicines are taken properly and at the right times, providing not only convenience but also peace of mind. It’s an important step towards maintaining your health and independence in the comfort of your own home.
How we help people with medication prompts.
Our medication prompt service provides essential support for individuals who need assistance managing their prescriptions. We help organise and remind you about your medications, supervise dosages, and liaise with the pharmacy to ensure a seamless integration of your medicinal needs into daily life. This service aims to maintain safety and accuracy in medication administration, empowering you to sustain your health and independence at home.

A Home Care Package (HCP) is funding given to older Australians through a government-subsidised program with the aim of providing long-term support for individuals who want to continue living independently at home.
At Let’s Get Care we have the largest list of service suppliers 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 services nationally. This means you have the freedom to choose and find care workers right for your situation, local to you.
- You’ll have access to specific supports and there isn’t much flexibility.
- You pay a subsidised rate from your own pocket, for the supports you use.
- You get an amount of funding that you can use for whatever services you require so long as they are within government guidelines and in line with your Care Plan.
- Once you have a package, it is yours until you no longer require it.
- You get to choose the services you would like to use – based on your unique situation.
After your assessment, you will receive a letter from My Aged Care letting you know the outcome of your assessment. If you are eligible for support you will be approved for a specific level (1,2,3 or 4) and placed in the national queue to wait for a package to be assigned to you.
When you are assigned your package, you will receive another letter indicating your assigned level and an individual referral code. At this time, you’ll need to choose your Provider.
