About Extracare Home Services


Since 2004, Extracare Home Services, a local privately owned company not directly funded by the government, has assisted thousands of clients in Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Port Stephens and surrounding areas. Extracare was established as an alternative to government funded organisations to meet the growing needs of an ageing population and the younger disabled. We are happy to assist our clients while they continue to enjoy the familiar surroundings of their own homes and families.

Specialising in short term assistance, our recently discharged hospitalised clients can re-establish themselves without the added stress of daily domestic tasks. Giving our clients a chance to rest and recuperate assists in a speedy recovery. Our assistance continues until you decide you are ready to discontinue our services. If you have ongoing needs our services can be varied to suit your changing circumstances.

In addition to domestic services, we provide personal care, meal preparation, shopping and transport, at times in conjunction with respite care. Short and long term care is available at your request. There is no hard and fast rule for assistance, as each of our clients have differing needs.

Our assistance revolves around you, your schedule, your favourite meals, your activities, the way you want it done and when you need it. Extracare is all about making sure that you are comfortable and well cared for in your own home. We promise to remember that you are the king or queen of your castle.
