How much will it cost?
Depending on your circumstances, you may be eligible to receive a subsidy form the Commonwealth Government to help cover the cost of support at home. Alternatively, you can still purchase our services privately for immediate support if you are not eligible for government funding, or you are waiting for your funding to arrive.
How to nominate Extracare as your service provider
You can nominate Extracare as your service provider by requesting us through your main care agency or by contacting one of our care partners below
Extracare Home Services Pty Ltd does not receive direct government funding towards the cost of services
We can assist you on a private basis. Our fees are not recoverable from Private Health Funds.
Extracare often contracts to provide services through other agencies who receive funding. When this occurs we are instructed by the agency as to what services are to be provided.
If you are a client of an Insurance Company and are receiving services as the result of a Motor Vehicle accident or Workers Compensation then our fees will be paid by the Insurance Company and the services we provide will be at their direction.
Funding from both State and Commonwealth governments is available from a wide range of sources. Your Doctor or Social Worker at the Hospital may make arrangements for you in this regard.
Extracare Home Services Pty Ltd was established in Newcastle at the beginning of 2004 to meet the growing needs of clients and other agencies for an independent Aged Care Provider. We have a proven track record for immediate response to all requests for services.
Extracare Home Services is privately owned and the focus is on service. Through effective management systems our administration is kept to a minimum.
Initially we built a reputation that is second to none for services to patients who are discharged from hospital and need immediate care at home to ensure that they make a speedy recovery. This reputation has continued to grow and as one of the few privately owned local aged care providers we have been described by others as “unique”.
