Pennwood Home Care delivers services to people who wish to remain but may need some assistance in remaining independent.
We can deliver these services by way of a Government Funded Home Care Package (HCP) or as a private unfunded client. We provide packages and private services to frail aged. We cater for people of all backgrounds with special focus on those of Serbian or Eastern European background. Pennwood’s focus is on reablement and wellness to ensure that our clients remain in their home for as long as possible.
The funded and unfunded services are delivered on Consumer Directed Care (CDC) basis.
HCP clients receive individualised budgets to enable them and/or their carers to have greater control over service delivery, products and services.
To receive care through a Home Care Packages the older person needs to be assessed by ACAT (Aged Care Assessment Team) to determine the care level required. A referral can be made through My Aged Care by yourself, your family members or your doctor on 1800 200 422.
To receive private services please give us a call to arrange a meeting to discuss suitable arrangements.
