Changing providers can feel overwhelming for many individuals receiving services under a home care package. We often find that many clients reach out to us after being unhappy with their existing provider for months, and sometimes years, only wishing they had done it sooner.
The process of changing Home Care Providers is a lot simpler than most people think and at Home Care Assistance Gold Coast, we are here to make it even easier. We can help to ensure that any unused funds in your home care package will simply be transferred to your new provider*.
I want to change providers, but not my other support services.
If you are unhappy with your Home Care provider, but don’t want to lose the relationships you have with people like your physiotherapist, podiatrist, or other support services, we will simply arrange for your chosen providers to continue as they have been even after you switch over.
3 steps to changing your home care provider
The process of moving your Home Care Package to Home Care Assistance Gold Coast involves three simple steps, and we can help you at every stage. We can even schedule a visit to your home with one of our Care Managers who can complete all three steps right then and there with you.
You will need to inform your current provider in writing of your wish to change providers. You will need to give them 2-4 weeks’ notice, depending on your agreement with them. If you are unsure of the notice period in your agreement, we can help you work this out and can also assist you to write the letter.
Once you have notified your provider of your intent to change, you need to call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 and let them know. They can then reactivate your Home Care Package referral code which will be used by your new provider. Please ensure you take note of this code.
Lastly, simply call our friendly team at Home Care Assistance Gold Coast, provide us with your referral code and the date you will discontinue care with your current provider. One of our Client Care Managers will come out to see you to set up your new services, ensuring a seamless transition from your previous provider.
I have been a Home Care Assistance client for 18 months.From day one the kindness and professional manner shown to me by Michelle has been wonderful. I no longer feel like a source of income I... feel like a valued friend.I look forward to the visits from Joan, who is often the only visitor we see, and also the the calls from Michelle 'just checking everything is okay'.Changing providers was the very best decision I made. Home Care Assistance genuinely care - about me and about all their other clients.read more

“Home Care Assistance are the true definition of higher class care. The team at HCA listened to our needs and we weren’t just another customer. Our carer arrives on time every time and helps with the... difficult tasks like cleaning and washing. The carer also takes us shopping so we don’t have to think about driving to the shops anymore. Thank you HCA, we don’t worry about how we will live at home anymore.”read more
They are great
My carer Beccy was perfectly matched to my needs. Michelle & Jourdan are always helpful & I couldn't live comfortably at home without the care from Home Care Assistance Gold Coast.
At the beginning of this year I interviewed several care companies searching for help with my mum who is totally dependant every day.Mum was quite resistant to the idea of having strangers coming in... to her home, she felt very uncomfortable, but I was desperate at the same timefeeling guilty. When speaking with Jourdan as we discussed HCA & theirpolicies, prices, priorities I felt that this was the right company for my mum & I. The interest in my mums needs & her fears were clearly important, which put me at ease making this new journey a little easier.From the 7th March we have received excellent care. Whatever we asked for has been received. The carers who attend to my mum are perfectly matched to her needs, she now feels safe, very comfortable & well cared for, she is also looking forward to their visits. The services we require are cleaning, meals, companionship & most of all friendliness. All of these are of a high standard. Mum & I are very grateful to all at Home Care Assistance Gold Coast.

I have changed the company who provided care for my mother to Home Care Assistance who are based at the Gold Coast. With the previous company I had 40 different carers over 3 years and now have the... same carer 5 days a week. My mother was with the same big company for 20 years. I requested they send the same carer on certain days but really did not care about my mothers or my needs. When someone is blind and deaf they do not need a carer coming into the house who has not been here before.The carers with Home Care Assistance are paid a better hourly rate than the previous company and their admin costs are far cheaper and now saving $600 a month which can now give me more hours.If you have elderly parents looking to change from the BIG providers give them a call. Michelle and Jourdan have been great to deal with and very caring.I highly recommend this company.They have carers looking for work and need more clients to make the transfer.read more
Kristi has been nothing but amazing, Couldn’t recommend her more !

I have received care for the last 2 years so I would like to say how happy I am with the provider. My carer is a well trained ex nurse who has helped me to live a happier life and look after my... needs. I am a level 4 and would probably need assistance outside my home without their care.i would reccommend the provider too anyone needing assistance . I have the same carer which is great for continuety of service She notices when I feel unwell without saying anything and looks after me very well.read more
It is the best choice and the best decision I have ever made in my life, choosing the Home Care Assistance in Southport, Gold Coast, they are very accommodating and helpful., very prompt in... replying and provide your needs. Assisting and organising home maintenance and modifications, providing a carer that meet your needs appropriately. this was done by Jourdan who I first met and organized from the beginning and now Christina. Michelle is very approachable and accomadating and very cheeerful, happy enough to listen. I highly recommend this organization without hesitation.read more
I cannot speak highly enough of the team at Home Care Assistance. They treated my gran and I like we were close family and always ready to help 24/7. The carers they provided were of the highest... standard and loved by my gran. The family appreciated the nature of the carers when they spoke to us about her progress and their recommendations. Nothing was to big or small a task for them to solve.Definitely recommend reaching out to them for home care packages.read more
My husband had two major strokes 6 years ago which turned our lives upside down over night. two years ago we were given the opportunity to look for a provider to help us make life easier at home for... my husband. We choose a provider and had them for two years. I can't tell express enough of how that ended up causing us so much stress and anxiety as they were in this business for the wrong reasons, very money orientated as fees were astronomical and the service was equally as bad. My husband even had a bad accident on his scooter where he could of been killed at Helensvale and some low life also stole his mobile phone while he was on the ground so he could not contact anyone but not even a word from my provider to say how sorry they were to hear that, it meant nothing, like I said just in it for the money. After two years I had had enough and found a provider by the name of Home Care Assistance. We have only been with them for one month and already it has made a huge difference to our lives, the stress levels are manageable now as they are absolutely in this business of caring for the elderly and disabled for the RIGHT reasons, they have been nothing but professional, kind and caring and they actually listen to what our needs are even though they are sometimes of the chart, but what counts is that it is to make my husbands life better, he is the one who was unlucky in life to have this happen to a very kind soul at a young age. We needed help and now we have it. The director of this company Michelle and our client advisor Jourdan have been the best and I can honestly say to anyone out there looking for a provider, as there are many, don't look any further than Home Care. If anyone would like to speak to me personally, pls get in touch with HomeCare as I will gladly tell u our story and how important it is that when tragedy strikes and you are a mess, you really need that help and support. I can't thank Home Care enough for everything in such a short time. I feel blessed to have found them.read more
Great service, lovely people
Jourdan and Michelle and their team have been fantastic. I have no idea how i would have gotten thru the last 8 months without them to be there for my mother.

Through it all they have been amazing- so professional and responsive. Easy to contact and provided great updates so i knew exactly what was going on. Mom loved them - you will tooread more
