Benefits of Home Care

The majority of ageing Australians wish to remain living in their own homes for as long as possible. This allows them control of their lives, retains their independence and keeps them engaged in their communities.

Here are some benefits of accessing Home Care supports:

Comfort of Home

People feel more comfortable when they are in their own homes. This has been proven to assist people to heal and get better and reduce depression. A change of environment and living situations can be very stressful. Home care can help you to stay in comfortable and familiar surroundings, in the house you love, surrounded by the things you love.


Home care helps you to stay independent by assisting in those areas you need a little bit of help. You are placed at the centre of your own care, and you decide what you need and when you need it. All care and support provided is designed to ensure you remain independent

Individualised care

Senior home care services can be tailored to your individual needs. We partnership with you to determine what care you want, as no 2 people are the same. The services you receive will be packaged to meet your individual circumstances and if your needs increase over time, additional support can be added.

Personalised Care

Receiving care in your own home means that a care worker can be focused only on you and not multiple people at once. UPA Sydney Home Care aims to provide the same worker to come and help you at home which builds a more personal connection between you and your care worker.

Benefits For The Family

Family members are quite often the primary caregivers of ageing relatives. Caring for a spouse, parent or family member can be stressful and overwhelming. Home support services can help ‘lighten the load’ or ensures your family knows you are in good hands and taken care of when they are not present. Unlike retirement living, people can stay in their own home longer.

Home Care is more affordable

Care at home has been shown to be more affordable than care at some nursing homes. If you get a professional caregiver to take care of your loved one at home, you get to develop an individual budget to plan for the care that is required.
