What are private home care services?

Private home care services means that you pay for the services you receive, rather than paying through government funding.

You can access our whole range of home care services in Perth by paying privately, and this is often a good option if you want to receive some help at home straight away, or if you:

  • Are waiting for funding to be approved
  • Want to top up with extra services that can’t be covered by your funding
  • Are not eligible for government funding
  • Need to access short-term services

If you choose Brightwater to provide you home care services – it will be on a private, fee-paying basis. Much like when you book with any other medical professionals, you will pay for the service directly. We will send you an invoice at the end of each month, and you will be able to pay through your preferred payment method.

You don’t need to be assessed, and you don’t need to be 65 – all you need to do is get in touch, let us know what services you want and we’ll get started as soon as you like.
