ABOUT CARE CONNECT

Your independent
Home Care experts

Helping more than 40,000 Australians lead the life they choose in the home they love.

We all want to live close to the people we love and do the things that make us happy and give us purpose. We all deserve to be treated with dignity and respect and maintain choice and control of our lives.

With more than 25 years’ experience, Care Connect continues to enable Australians to live independently at home and stay connected with their family, friends and community for as long as possible.

We take the time to listen, and understand your home care needs, then find the right providers in your area to provide day-to-day support where you need it most. We also help manage your care plan now and into the future, ready to respond as your needs change.

Every person is welcome

We are committed to providing inclusive, culturally appropriate and responsive services and supports to every person. We recognise people have individual needs shaped through their own lived experience, and we promote the need for greater understanding, acceptance and incorporation of diversity throughout the Australian community. We acknowledge the unique experiences of people who are Culturally and Linguistically Diverse, Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, Carers, Care Leavers, LGBTQI+ or Veterans.

 

Recognising Carers

Care Connect recognises the importance of Carers providing unpaid care and support to family members and friends. We are committed to developing and delivering services and supports which respond to the needs of Carers. Our recognition and support for Carers is guided by the 10 principles outlined in the Statement for Australia’s Carers*:

  1. All carers should have the same rights, choices and opportunities as other Australians, regardless of age, race, sex, disability, sexuality, religious or political beliefs, Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander heritage, cultural or linguistic differences, socioeconomic status or locality.
  2. Children and young people who are carers should have the same rights as all children and young people and should be supported to reach their full potential.
  3. The valuable social and economic contribution that carers make to society should be recognised and supported.
  4. Carers should be supported to enjoy optimum health and social wellbeing and to participate in family, social and community life.
  5. Carers should be acknowledged as individuals with their own needs within and beyond the caring role.
  6. The relationship between carers and the persons for whom they care should be recognised and respected.
  7. Carers should be considered as partners with other care providers in the provision of care, acknowledging the unique knowledge and experience of carers.
  8. Carers should be treated with dignity and respect.
  9. Carers should be supported to achieve greater economic wellbeing and sustainability and, where appropriate, should have opportunities to participate in employment and education.
  10. Support for carers should be timely, responsive, appropriate and accessible.
