With a growing list of very enthusiastic clients (and families), the private provider founded by Tamar Krebs is now offering both approved home care packages and private services delivered by its trained ‘homemakers’, social workers and registered nurses up to 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Group Homes Australia tells us they initially plan to roll out the service across Sydney before going national and have close to 100 staff on their GHA@Home books.
The provider operates under the model common in the disability sector where small groups of six to ten residents live together in suburban homes and can choose their own daily routines and hobbies with a 1:3 staff ratio.
Home care clients can also have respite care in one of their group homes priced from $295 per day.
Co-CEO Jonathan Gavshon says this new service is a natural extension of their business model.
“We have already seen a large demand from families that call us and are not quite ready to move into one of our group homes,” he said.
