If you are looking for a little extra support with household jobs, our services can be tailored to suit your priorities and preferences – whether that’s making the bed, or folding clothes. Designed to support you with everyday domestic assistance, our services give you the peace of mind of having a fresh, clean and safe home. So you can focus on other things. With more than 25 years of experience helping people live at home independently, we know how important that is. So the better we know your preferences and priorities – the better we can support you.

What do Domestic Assistance services cost?
KinCare’s Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) services are subsidised by the Australian Government. The subsidy programme does not necessarily fund the full cost of the service. So each person may pay a small contribution.
Your KinCare Customer Care Manager will discuss the cost of the service at your initial consultation, before services start. Payment can be made by direct debit, EFT, cheque or credit card. Special consideration is available to people experiencing financial difficulty.
