Why Choose Us?
There are three easy steps to start receiving support from Bannister In Home Care:
- Call us on 1300 368 991, email us at [email protected] or fill out our Contact Form
to speak to one of our Customer Service Officers who will take your details and get to know your care needs.
- Our Customer Service Officer will pass on your information to a Care Coordinator who will give you a call to talk some more and set up a time to visit you for a complimentary in-home assessment.
- On the day of your in-home assessment, your Care Coordinator will come to your home to work with you and your family or advocates to come up with a care plan that works for you. We’ll talk about:
Who you are, what you like and don’t like
Your needs and goals for your in home care
Your favourite past and present community activities, pastimes, family history and culture and any other information that will help us deliver your unique care services designed just for you
Any medical conditions that we need to be mindful of
Your family support network and how they will be involved in your care moving forward
Your professional healthcare support network and how to fit this in with your in home care – such as a visiting nurse, physical therapist, dietician, occupational therapist or other healthcare professionals
- After your home assessment, our team will develop your personalised comprehensive care plan
to suit your goals and deliver your care in a way that fits you.
- You read through your care plan and talk with your loved ones to decide if Bannister In Home Care
is the service provider you want to deliver your home support services.
Your in home care services with Bannister Begin:
From the date your agreement is signed, we get straight to work scheduling your requested services.
It takes time to get this right, we ask for 2 weeks under normal circumstances to make sure we send the most appropriate not the first available. We always strive to provide consistency in staff – a good working relationship is important to achieve positive outcomes through your package.
Questions you may have about eligible expenses are approved by your coordinator – reimbursements and purchases are made within 5 business days of receiving approval.
Your Home Care Package statement will be provided at the start of the month, for the month just passed. You can call our office at any stage to check up-to-day package fund balance.
Your coordinator will schedule reviews with you at appropriate milestones or during changes to your circumstances.
Meeting your goals:
You may already have an idea what you would like to achieve from your Home Care Package or you may need some help in deciding what works for you and how to maximise your funds.
Your Care Coordinator is here to assist you in setting your goals and working together to achieve them. We will conduct regular reviews to ensure all strategies are working to support you in meeting those goals and look at any new goals you would like to set.
Goals are very individual and specific to you. We will guide you on the use of Government funding and develop a budget together to make the most of your Home Care Package funds. This will support you in achieving your goals sooner.
Collaboration for your care:
Most of positive feedback that we receive refers to the speed and ease with which our clients can access their coordinator.
Coordinators working in a collaborative and supportive way is a priority for Bannister In Home Care, something we take pride in. Coordinators are decision makers but they aren’t overly prescriptive, they are able to discuss appropriate strategies and confirm the suitability of your plans – or recommend alternatives. The spirit of flexibility and responsiveness to client preferences is encouraged through all business departments – we are a customer service organisation.
We offer a free over-the-phone assessment, or you can fill in our online form to find out which of our services best suits your needs.
