About us

We only employ senior, experienced Division 1 Registered Nurses, fully-qualified practitioners and trained specialists who care about the safety and health of our older generation.

We practice and uphold current safety and hygiene protocols, industry best practice standards and we are fully insured, police checked and all registrations are vetted with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.

Our clients often feel they are doing – and getting – something of value by using a local business that is also an employer. By having friendly and qualified experts helping them stay at home, they get to continue being a part of the community in which they have been in for a long time.

Quality support for everyone

We support older people’s right to quality care and quality support along with the Elder Rights Advocacy’s mission for a diverse, vibrant, multicultural community, where older people are respected, heard, well-informed, and can exercise their rights and responsibilities with confidence. Elder Right’s Advocacy is also a member of the Older Person’s Advocacy Network.

Country to Coast Home Care Services is also a proud member of LASA, the national association for all providers of age care services whose purpose includes supporting older Australians to age well by providing care, support and accommodation with quality, safety and compassion.

We also work closely with a number of organisations including Switchboard Victoria Out & About which is a service connecting older LGBTI Victorians.

We are partnering with Geelong Rehabilitation Centre who can tailor an exercise and massage program to suit your needs. GRC’s team of exercise physiologists can help you increase mobility, health and wellbeing as part of your home care and rehabilitation program.

Women’s rights are human rights. Due to some social structures, traditions, stereotypes and attitudes about women and their role in society, women do not always have the opportunity and ability to access and enforce their rights on the same basis as men. Although we have come a long way, there are still many areas in Australian society in which women and girls experience unequal treatment. At Country to Coast we actively spport women, and women’s rights in any home care services we provide.
