​Introduction to Hospice Home Care

Patients with life-limiting illnesses, such as advanced dementia or cancer, and whose conditions are expected to get worse in weeks or months may choose to spend their days at home instead. In such cases, caregivers need help coping with the patient’s needs.

How to Apply

Get a referral from a hospital, polyclinic or GP that your loved one visits. A doctor must say that the patient is suffering from advanced and progressive disease.

The service can cost between $100 and $150 per visit before means-testing. The amount varies based on your household’s income.

You may also visit the online E-care locator​​​ to find service providers near you.​
