Home care

Goodwin home care services help you stay in your new home at The Central for as long as possible, even if your needs change over time.

Home care is about maintaining your quality of life. Our philosophy is to “do with” not “do for”, so our clients always feel empowered, respected and capable.

Alongside your new home’s built-in adaptability for changing mobility needs, home care services may, for some, mean never having to move again.

Your home at The Central is built to adaptable housing code, such as extra wide doors and shower entry, and flat walkways to allow for wheelchairs or walkers; plus wall space ready for hand rails.

Goodwin’s home care services include basic domestic tasks through to high level nursing care.

Home care services are an additional cost, but you may be able to access subsidies from the federal government.

Costs can vary greatly, according to the services you need and the frequency with which we visit you. A Goodwin home care representative would be happy to chat with you about cost estimates, based on your individual circumstance.

Goodwin home care services are available to anyone over 60 years old, on a fee-for-service basis. A needs assessment is required to access government funded programs. These assessments are free, and conducted in your home.

Goodwin’s home care team will be happy to assist you through the process of accessing government support. Otherwise, we are happy to visit you in your home to discuss your needs and a fee-for-service plan that suits you.
