- Allied Health – $59.50 per hour
- Personal Care – $48.90 per hour
- Respite – $48.90 per hour

Barbara's story | Commonwealth Home Care Support
“When I contacted HCA Home I have someone to speak to straight away. The support workers always ask if they is any more that they can help me with, which is nice.”
“Having HCA Home means I can still have my social life and go out with family and friends. I love having the gardening done because when my son visits he spends time with me, rather than feeling like he has to assist me and do the gardening himself.”
– Barbara, customer.
