Lively’s intergenerational home care model

You'd be surprised what's possible when you make care a little more human.


Our young Helpers aren't just enthusiastic; they're empathetic to your unique situation and open to listening to how your prefer to have things done. 


We'll match you with one or two Helpers local to your community, as well as your own personal Care manager. You'll be seeing the same faces from there on out, giving you the chance to develop an authentic connection with them over time.


Check out our feature on ABC to see what an intergenerational friendship really looks like.

Our care managers

Our Helpers aren’t the only ones in your home care team.

You’ll also be supported by our more senior care managers, who bring the same vitality and enthusiasm as our young people alongside a wealth of knowledge and experience working in the aged care sector.

They’ll be there with you every step of the way on your home care journey, helping you figure out the types of supports you’re after and coordinating them for you.

They can even help arrange third-party services as part of your care plan. Got a gardener you’ve been using for years? No problem! Bring them on board.

With all the stress of care management taken out, all you’ve got to focus on is living a better life at home.

Funding options

Home care packages


Home Care Packages are government-funded supports that help older people continue living well at home.

Packages are awarded through the Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS), you can kickstart the process by filling out an online form or calling them on 1800 200 422. Keep in mind that the process can take 12-18 months, so the sooner you call, the better.

Once you’ve been assigned a Home Care Package, our care manager will work with you on how best to use your funds, so you can keep living well at home.


Private payment


Everything Lively offers under Home Care Packages can also be paid for privately with the same pricing. Similar to a Home Care Package, we'll spend time getting to know you and your home. However, with private fee paying services, there's no third party funding to wait for, so we can match you with a Helper right away and start providing services within a few weeks.



As a not-for-profit, we only charge what's necessary for us to deliver high-quality care (and pay our Helpers fairly)! We charge you a combined care and package management fees of 20%, leaving more of your home care package budget to be spend on care and supports.


You can book your preferred local Lively Helpers at $52 per hour to help you live well and pursue personal interest activities.


And choose from our ready-to-go providers of Allied Health, nursing, equipment, home modifications, taxi cards and meal delivery; and/or we will work with you to organise services with a someone you already know and trust. Rates as quoted by the external provider, no extra fees on top.


Full details on pricing are available here.
