Aged Care

Domestic Assistance

A helping hand around the home

Spending time on your favourite hobby or entertaining friends and family can make time spent at home much more enjoyable. KinCare can help you keep your house in order so you can continue to live independently at home while doing more of the things you love.

A clean and tidy home can also make a big difference to your health, wellbeing, safety and comfort. Regular or occasional assistance with household duties will ensure your home is safe and well-maintained, and also give you more time to spend on activities you enjoy.

Our aim is to ensure your home is cared for just the way you like it. We work with you to help make your home an enjoyable place to live. Whether it’s changing your bedsheets, mopping the floor, or walking your dog, our friendly home care workers will help you get chores done around your home so you can enjoy a clean and tidy house and feel comfortable in your home.

How it works

Getting to know you is important to us. Your KinCare Customer Care Manager will spend time with you to get to know your interests, learn about your household and understand how you like to do things. We will work with you to understand the types of things you need or want assistance with around the home, and the suitable times our staff can visit. We will also work with you to select a suitable team member you can really trust and feel comfortable with.

Depending on your individual needs, our friendly and experienced Home Care Workers can visit on a regular basis or occasionally to give you a helping hand around the home.
