What is Private Home Care?

Royalty Scope Nursing Services can provide private home care in all suburbs of the Sutherland Shire, southern Sydney including St George and through to the eastern suburbs around Randwick where all the major hospitals and specialists are located. In home nursing care costs are not part of the Government subsidised home care solutions and don’t require any assessment. You can find private nursing companies to get quotes on the cost of home help for the elderly or family members very quickly. Getting short term domestic assistance or access to registered nurses can help improve the quality of daily life and an ability to live independently with a case manager keeping things in check.

Private home care is different from the Home Care Packages that are available via the Government subsidised home care programs to get the care and support required. The benefit of choosing this type of service is that it is practically instant and is like choosing other professional services to get care for your loved ones. The Royalty Scope Nursing Service can provide community care for your family with an expertly trained and qualified service with our unique 1 on 1 onboarding program that ensures your loved one is in good hands from the very first conversation.

Private home care can be used to provide a few hours of help around the house each week or it could be for a loved one that needs specialist medical nursing 24/7 for a health condition or even end-of-life care at home. Our private home care services can be organised to be for a week, a few months or longer. We also find that a number of our Clients choose private health care to fill the time gap while they wait for assessments and approvals for Government funding.

Is Private Home Care better than a Live-In Nurse?

Private home care can sometimes be better than a live-in nurse because you can have the in home nursing care cost based on your specific requirements rather than have someone there all the time for your family member where they may not be needed 24/7.

What is the difference between Private Home Care and a Nursing Home?

Private home care enables anyone to cover the cost of home help for the elderly or family members to get assistance in the comfort of their own home. There are a number of private nursing companies in Sydney like Royalty Scope Nursing Services that provide private nursing care at home.

So you can have private care with a range of care options that are all provided on a 1 on 1 basis by a qualified professional. A Nursing Home is a location that has multiple patients who all live together, so it is like a public gathering where general services are made available for your loved one. Home care is a more private option that allows your loved one to remain in their own home so that means it can be less disruptive for individuals with say Alzheimer’s or dementia.

Here are some considerations;

  • Home care creates a more personal, one-on-one relationship with the caregiver.
  • It’s comfortable and familiar in their existing surroundings.
  • An elderly person is able to remain as independent as possible rather than needing basic tasks to be done by a group of strangers. 
  • The cost of private home care is often less expensive than care out of the home.
  • A home may not be as secure as medical care facilities, which have security and staff available 24/7.

How do you choose a Private Home Care provider?

Choosing a private home care provider can be a challenging prospect but it is important to look at;

  • Their approach to home care.
  • The reviews or testimonials they have.
  • Who are the people providing the care, are they contractors or staff.
  • What service level agreement do they provide.
  • How well or how often do they communicate.
  • Their qualifications and experience.
