Our Story

Care For Family has been supporting our local communities in Sydney and beyond with the highest quality private in-home care since 2014 under the expert leadership of Ruth Samer, who has been an in-home aged care and childcare services specialist for over 30 years.

Our Founder, Ruth Samer, began working in care management roles when she needed assistance with childcare for her own young family as her career at the time took her overseas for long periods.

She couldn’t find anything affordable with excellent quality at the same time and believed that this kind of support should be available for families. She then established one of the first Au Pair agencies in Sydney and has not looked back since.

When Ruth started Care For Family it was on the same principles:

    • High quality compassionate individualised care…
    • At accessible and affordable prices…
    • From a team that is cared for and respected too…

This is what Ruth believes should be available for people of all ages and at all life stages if they need support – and so our in-home care support agency, Care For Family was born.

There’s no place like YOUR home for happiness and wellbeing

Feeling well and positive is much easier when you are in your own home and surrounded by familiarity and your normal routine.

Experienced, qualified, compassionate & friendly care team

Every single person in our care team is qualified, experienced, reference checked and most importantly of all – treats your family like their own.

Affordable private in-home care with NO case management fees

Top quality care is often difficult to find and even harder for some families to afford. Our services are transparent, affordable and easy to understand.

Talk to Us

“You can count on us to deliver exceptional personal assistance, companionship and in-home support designed specially for your loved ones when they can’t properly care for themselves.

“With over 30 years’ experience in the care industry, I’ve seen first hand the difference quality care can make. Yet all too often it is beyond the financial reach of many families.

“I strongly believe professional in-home care should be achievable and affordable, which is why I founded Care For Family.

“I believe in putting people before profits so that you and your family can access the services you need to achieve the best life possible.”

Ruth Samer, Founder of Care For Family

"I am happy to highly recommend Care For Family for anyone who is looking for kind, professional and very caring carers, for an ageing parent or older person.Nothing has been too much trouble, and Ruth Samer, whose company it is, has always been available to discuss what is needed and organise it.Ruth is highly experienced in running a care organisation, and it shows.The carers Care For Family provides are the sort of people we want our mother to be around and whose company she enjoys. I highly recommend Care For Family as an excellent service."

Louella H K, Sydney

“I recently used Care for Family to assist my elderly mother care for my frail aged father. I found Ruth Samer to be extremely approachable and professional in all our dealings. She was able to assess their situation and advise me about my parents’ needs. The carers were highly qualified for the job, professional, honest, warm and understanding. My mother was ambivalent about accepting support but now has extended the hours of care provided. I would highly recommend Care for Family.”

Dorothy, Northbridge

“I am an elderly lady, 91 years young, and wish to remain in my own home. The team at Care for Family has given me the freedom and confidence to do this. I accept I need assistance with day to day living and my two carers, who share 7 days a week, are caring and very capable of looking after my every need.Thank you Care for Family. This is where I want to be – at home – not in a nursing home.”

Rae, Darling Point
