NDIS funding

You can use your NDIS support plan to pay for your bookings and get a helping hand or someone to hang out with, whenever you need it.

Aged Care Support

Aged Care Package

Have an Aged Care support plan? You can use it with us! Like Family can help you feel independent, lend you a hand with your day-to-day, or get you out and about.

The right kind of care

Support is more than having things ticked off a to-do list — it’s about connection and companionship. That’s why we make sure we carefully match you with the right Social Carer from the get-go.

How it works

Carers you can trust and rely on.

Every Like Family carer goes through a careful verification process, police check and in-person induction to make sure they’re the right fit for the team and you!

Hiring process

What we offer.

After a helping hand? Like Family is here to support you. If you’re after companionship or non-medical services due to ageing, illness or disability, we might be just what you need.
