Home & Community Care

Home and community carers assist the elderly, disabled people and people who need help due to illness or injury.


Please contact us to find out more or discuss your unique needs.

Home and Community (non medical) carers can live with your loved one in their home if required. They help with grocery shopping, social outings, appointments, medication reminders, housekeeping, meal preparation and companionship, which helps reduce the effects of isolation and keeps your loved one’s mind active.

The consistency and reliability of a knowing a single carer will always be there for your loved one (especially during emergencies) reduces stress on you AND on the person requiring care. Regular companionship and the ability to leave the home for social outings improves the physical and mental health of people requiring care.

Our guarantee to you:

In the first 4 weeks after your nanny/carer starts working for your family, if things don’t work out as expected, you are entitled to ONE free replacement (where we place a new nanny/carer with you). Click here to read our “Refunds and Cancellations Policy” for further details.  Please note that the replacement period does not apply to temp placements or any placements lasting 3 months or less.


Ideally, we require 4-6 weeks to find and finalise placements. At Safekeeping CQ, we like to be as thorough as possible! If it is an URGENT placement we will try our best to find someone within the time frame given – just let us know your requirements.

Please remember we DO NOT EMPLOY the finalised Carer/s: we are an introduction/referral agency only.

To employ a Live-In Carer, you must provide:

  • Full board for the Carer in their own furnished private bedroom
  • All meals
  • Approximately 1.5 to 2 days off per week (these do not have to be consecutive days but one day must be a weekend day unless otherwise agreed)
  • Guaranteed accommodation and meet the above conditions: E.g. if the family/individual goes on holidays and chooses not to take their Carer with them, Live-In Carers are entitled to their wage and must be able to still stay in the family’s house.
  • Criminal history checks for all adults that are residing in the household prior to placement to ensure the safety of the Live-In employee.

Temp positions or anything 3 months and under DO NOT include the replacement guarantee.
