Like Family is a disability and aged care provider specialising in social and community support. This means we are able to support all kinds of people, from older Australians with dementia, to autistic teenagers, to people who have sustained a temporary injury.
Basically, if you need a helping hand, you can use Like Family!
You can access our support services with your NDIS funding, Home Care Package, or by paying privately.
Whether you're looking for support for yourself, a loved one or a client, read on to learn more about Like Family and our community.
NDIS and disability support
As a proud NDIS registered provider, Like Family supports participants with a wide range of disabilities. Our Social Carers (support workers) have experience helping people with physical disabilities, vision or hearing impairments, intellectual disabilities, psychosocial disabilities and autism.
Our Carers help NDIS participants to increase their independence, learn new skills, and have fun whilst doing it. They do this via a range of social support activities, like providing transportation, helping with household chores, accompanying someone to a social event, and much more.
You can use your NDIS funding to access our disability support services, or pay privately. Find out how to use your NDIS funding with Like Family.
We also support primary carers and unpaid caregivers by providing either planned or emergency temporary care or respite care. Respite care provides a short-term break for unpaid caregivers of children or adults with disability, giving them a much-needed break so they can feel recharged, run errands or attend important appointments.
Aged care and services for senior Australians living at home
Like Family supports many older Australians who are looking for a trusted source of regular support. Many aged care providers and nursing homes can seem expensive, crowded and overwhelming if you or your loved one are newly in need of care.
If you don't need a nurse but want someone to check in on your loved ones, Like Family may be just want you need. We offer a range of non-medical aged care services that can take place at home, at a nursing home, or out in the community. This includes help with household chores, errands, and transportation.
You can choose to see the same Social Carer each week, someone who understands your elderly relative’s unique needs and preferences, so you don’t have to repeat the same instructions over and over to new support workers.
We work with self-managed Home Care Package providers to provide support that complements the home care services you’re already receiving. If you don't have a Home Care Package, you can pay for our services privately.
