Disability Support FAQs

At KinCare, we often get asked questions by people looking into care for themselves or their loved ones. To help you out, our team has compiled some of the most frequently asked questions we get about our home care services.

Who are KinCare and what do they do?

KinCare is one of Australia’s leading in-home care providers.

We’re committed to improving the quality of life, health, and wellbeing of everyone we provide in-home care for. Having been a part of the industry for over 25 years, we know what it takes to help older Australians and people with disabilities live independently in their own homes.

No matter when you come to us, you can be sure that you and your family members will be well taken care of.

What types of in home care or support services can I receive?

Our home care services are provided to aged and disabled Australians in a way that’s based on your unique needs.

For disabled Australians, KinCare offers a wide range of services under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and NDIS WA. To make things easier when you transition to NDIS, we provide state government funded services in WA, TAS, NSW, SA, and the ACT. However, KinCare also provides services to those who have the would like to privately fund their care.

Find out about what disability support we offer. 

How much do KinCare services cost?

Many of our customers are eligible for government subsidies that cover the care costs involved. In some instances, you will need to supplement the government subsidy with your personal income.

As the cost for each person is dependent on a number of things, you might find it helpful to have someone talk you through your specific circumstances. If you’d like to speak to someone, please call us on 1300 733 510 or get in touch with our team.

What are KinCare’s exit policies?

At KinCare, we’ve chosen to completely waive any exit fees for our customers, as your circumstances can easily change.

With some home care providers, there are now potential exit fees to pay if you decide to change to a new one. This fee is only payable if it was included in your Home Care Agreement and is deducted from any unspent funds.

What happens if I’m having trouble paying my fees?

If you’re having money troubles, you can apply for financial hardship assistance through Centrelink, (Department of Human Services). This will help with both the basic daily fee and/or income tested care fee. However, this is subject to an updated means test.
