Like Family is amazing. I have been with 2 providers previously, and always had issues. Like Family is so easy to deal with. The office staff are all so helpful, and my carer is fabulous. Nothing is a problem. I’m blown away

Frequently asked questions

Our support workers can help you with a range of activities to build your independence, engage with your community and have fun. These include help with household tasks, meal preparation, arts & craft, skills development, transportation, and companionship to social events. They cannot help with medical or personal care.

We want social support to be accessible and sustainable, regardless of your budget and funding. Our focus on community participation is designed to maximise the amount of care you receive, so you can set bigger and better goals for your Core Support and Capacity Building plans.

We want our pricing to be as simple as possible, which means no added fees. You only pay for the time you spend with your Social Carer.

We provide social support in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland. If you live out of area, we also offer phone and video bookings. Contact us on if you need a hand finding a Carer in your area!
