Choose Your Side - the leading provider of Home Care Packages
A Home Care Package is an allocation of funds that allows you to purchase care services so you can remain living independently in your own home. Northside Customer Care Coordinators can guide you through the process of securing funding for a home care package, understanding what your care package level means, and provide you with a range of support services.
Look after your health + wellbeing at home with support that’s tailored to you.
Sometimes health, physical limitations or a lack of time can make it difficult to maintain your health and home the way you’d like. We can help you with these daily household tasks to make your life easier and your home more comfortable and safe. At Your Side, we listen to your needs and connect you with a range of health and home care services according to your home care package, NDIS plan or private funding so you can continue to live at home and do more of what you enjoy.
There are four levels of home care packages available:

Helen cares for her husband, Robert, who has dementia. Caring for him is a full-time job and Helen has found it difficult to find time to manage the housework and catch up with friends. Feeling a little overwhelmed, she reached out to Northside for support.
Her Northside Customer Care Coordinator was able to guide her through the process of eligibility and securing government funding for support. Many of the services she didn’t realise she was eligible for. She used our gardening & handyman jobs service to have her balcony swept and cleaned up so she could enjoy sitting outside and to fix the odd jobs around the house she hadn’t had time to get to. She now has a cleaner come in fortnightly to tidy the house and gets fresh meals home-delivered to take the stress out of figuring out what to make for dinner each night.
Through connecting with Northside, Helen has also found resources and workshops to help her be better equipped to care for her husband living with dementia. Northside’s Total Care services have made a world of difference in both their daily lives and wellbeing.
