Bethel Home Care
Your home. Your choice. Our care.
Why choose Us?
Bethel Home Care Clients are at the heart of all we do.
Our Care Managers will help tailor a package of care and services which best suit each person’s individual needs and desires.
We help maintain the lifestyle our clients wish to live, keeping them engaged with community, interests and family life. All our services are flexible. Clients can even keep their own cleaner or gardener if they are already happy with the help they currently receive.
What is a Home Care Package?
A Home Care Package is a government program that provides support to older people with complex needs to help them continue living in their own home for as long as possible. These services are tailored to respect individual wishes, changing care profiles and flexibility of choice.
The services we provide are based around individual client choices. Our goal is to assist our clients in maintaining their lifestyle and helping them stay connected and engaged with all aspects of their lives.
Our Care Managers first discuss their client needs. Together, we will design a package of care and services befitting each person’s individual requirements. These services are always fully flexible for tailoring.
What sets Bethel Home Care apart
Person Centred Care
Our packages are designed for each voice to be heard. Our complete focus is on our clients, addressing individual needs and preferences. We want to maintain the lifestyle our clients wish to live, keeping them engaged with their interests and family life.
We work closely with our clients and their families, GPs and any other health professionals to provide the best possible, individually tailored care package.
All Bethel Home Care clients can join in group-based exercises and entertainment at Ashfield Baptist Homes. They can also go on weekly bus outings in and around Sydney. We can provide transportation for all activities.
We speak several languages, and cater for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people (55 and over), respecting cultural diversity and gender equality.

ACAT Assessment Process
The first stage is to establish whether the client is eligible for subsidised aged care. This involves a two-part assessment process that understands the client needs and what services could help them. It starts with a simple eligibility check which can be completed online or over the phone followed by an in-person assessment.
An ACAT (Aged Care Assessment Team) will assess the client for a Home Care Package. They can also provide assessments for short term and residential care options.
The client will then be referred for an assessment to better understand their care needs and types of care they may be eligible for.
