"In 2012 whilst away on holiday I had the misfortune of breaking my arm. Whilst this was healing I was in Buckley caring centre on respite. My son discussed with me that he thought it was time I got some services to help me once I returned home to my unit. I was assessed by the Aged Care Assesment Team and was approved for home care services.
To start with someone came to help me shower and dress whilst my arm was still healing. I also had a cleaner come each week to assist with my housework and also someone came to do my shopping.
I was required to contribute a small amount of money towards the cost of my services and the government paid the rest.
Now I still pay my small amount into the fund and with the government payment I am also able to maintain my Gopher, utilise a podiatry service and purchase equipment to assist me to remain living in my own unit longer. I am able to have a gardener come and maintain my garden, and I receive help with transport for Doctor and hospital appointments. Essentially I can use the funding to spend on anything that will help me stay at home. Last week I even updated my walker and it has all been paid for by my Amaroo Home Care Package."

The units and surroundings are very safe and secure and the Amaroo staff are very helpful and friendly and problems are attended to without delay. The associated club room is a great meeting place and the activities are well accepted. We will continue to enjoy our life here as long as possible."
