About Our Live-in Home Care for Seniors Services

That’s why, at Care For Family, we provide expert live-in home care for seniors who wish to maintain their independence, remain at home, and continue enjoying the life they’ve built.

“I was so impressed that within 8 hours of requesting care for my Mum we had a care team in place offering the most incredible caring support.”

Wilma & family

“It was a huge relief knowing the care team was always practicing the highest level of professionalism and to know that the same familiar team members arrived every day and night.”


“The care team’s support and dedication was truly amazing. Each of the carers enriched Mr Smith’s life in some way and I know that he enjoyed their company. They were always on time for their shifts and so pleasant to be with and I formed a lovely bond with each of them.”

What is live-in home care for seniors?

Live-in care is an alternative to other full-time aged care solutions such as nursing homes, and allows seniors experiencing complex or ongoing care needs to remain in their own home with the support of live-in professional care workers. This type of care can be incredibly important in helping your senior loved one to maintain their sense of independence and avoid unnecessary disruptions to their lifestyle, all while remaining safe and cared for.

Live-in home care differs from 24-hour care in that it provides a consistent and reliable caring framework for your loved one. Our experienced and professional care team are kind, compassionate, and dedicated to providing the highest quality of support to our clients. Our tailored in-home care solutions are designed in consultation with your family and your senior loved one, to meet their individual needs and desires for their care.

Who can benefit from live-in home care for seniors?

Whether your loved one requires care throughout the week on a full-time basis, or part-time care to compliment the care given by family members and primary carers, they can benefit greatly from live-in home care services from Care For Family.

Full-time care

For those requiring round-the-clock care, seven days a week, Care For Family can provide up to four dedicated care workers throughout the week. These care workers work on a roster of 24-hour shifts, and live within the home with your loved one throughout their shift. A live-in care worker is available 24-hours per day to assist your loved one with their needs, however, they will normally sleep throughout the night.

We understand that it can be almost impossible to predict the needs of your elderly loved one in advance, and that they may require help throughout the night on occasion. Rest assured, our live-in care solutions are flexible and customisable, allowing you the freedom and peace of mind to know that your loved one is never without the help they need. 

When more care is required, an additional hourly rate can be applied, or an additional care team member can be provided to offer added support to your live-in care worker. Where ongoing care is required throughout the night, a 24-hour aged care service from Care For Family may be a more appropriate solution.

Part-time care

For seniors who enjoy help from their loved ones throughout the week, part-time care may be a more appropriate and affordable solution. We can offer live-in home care for seniors for as little as one day per week, and up to seven.

You can tailor a plan to suit the needs of your loved one and the amount of care your family members are able to support with, to ensure that your loved one is cared for throughout the entire week.

Why choose live-in care from Care For Family?

There are many reasons that someone might need a live-in care team for support, such as returning from hospital and undergoing rehabilitation and recovery, a gradual increase in the support needed due to ageing, or simply to give primary carers a break.

Our live-in home care for seniors is designed to be flexible and support you and your family, no matter how long you need us for. Live-in care can be short-term, or long-term, depending on your needs and those of your senior loved one.

Long-term live-in care is something that enables seniors to continue living at home for as long as possible, stay connected to family and friends, enjoy their social lives, and continue to be a part of their local community.

As time goes by, our experienced and compassionate care team can be provided with extra support from our registered nurses, who can assist with increasing care needs and even palliative care, when the time comes.

The team from Care For Family are dedicated to providing your loved one with the best quality of life, and for many, that means staying in their own home in their later years. The services we provide to enable this for our clients include:

How much does live-in care cost?

At Care For Family, our live-in home care solutions are offered at an hourly or packaged flat rate, depending on the type of care and level of care required. 

Our aged care solutions, including live-in care and 24-hour care, are flexible and able to be scaled up or down as your loved one’s needs change.

To find out more about our pricing, get in touch with our team today.

Is live-in care government funded?

Yes! For those over the age of 65 requiring support from an aged care provider, the government’s Home Care Packages (HCP) Program can offer funding to contribute toward your loved one’s care depending on the level of your Gov’t package to help keep your loved one at home, safe and independent.

The level of government funding is determined by the amount of care required, and the family’s ability to offer support to their loved one. Both part-time and full-time live-in care can be partly funded under the HCPs program. To find out more, visit the HCP website here.
