When it comes to your home care, we’re goal focussed. What do we mean by that?
For some of our clients, independence means being able to live as closely as possible to the way they always have. They’re looking for support to carry on enjoying the same things and going to the same places.
For other clients, independence means being able to do more than they were able to do before. They might want to go to places farther afield or to learn to do new things.
For some, getting help from us frees their children to be daughters and sons again instead of carers.
Taking into account what independence means to you is what we mean when we say we’re focussed on goals — your goals. Focussing on goals means we don’t think only in terms of tasks that you need to get done. It means we consider where you want to be, and partner with you on getting there. It’s why our care workers “do with” rather than “do for”.
Oxley Home Care’s partnership approach is proven to build the confidence our clients need to maintain — and even increase — their independence.
They tell me in writing who’s coming and when they’ll be here. Then they arrive on time and go on time. They are very good.

Oxley Home Care
A real family business
Oxley Home Care began in 2006 with one person — a
nurse who believed there was a better way to help
clients enjoy life in their own homes.
Gilian, our co-founder, had 30 years’ experience in nursing, a career in which her research had been published in academic publications like Anaesthetic and Intensive Care Journal. As a nurse, Gilian had seen first-hand the difference that the right care makes to the quality of a person’s life. And as an assistant director of nursing, she’d managed large teams delivering that care.
Gilian started Oxley Home Care with her husband, Fraser, a senior manager with experience running large operations. They saw a way to provide high-value care affordably to older Australians. Their first step was to employ and train their own care workers so that they could maintain the quality of care being provided. Their second step was to back them with the sorts of systems and process that Gilian and Fraser were experts in developing for the service and aged care sectors.
Today, Oxley Home Care is no longer one care worker travelling from client to client. Rather, it’s a close-knit business of 200 trained staff who are committed to high standards and dedicated to their clients.
At the heart of everything we do
Caring as a vocation
We believe that caring for older people is a vocation.
We believe our clients deserve to know exactly who will be coming into their homes and when they will arrive.
Our clients know that the people coming into their homes are directly employed by us — care workers who we train, insure, support and pay fairly for following their calling to take care of people who deserve the highest quality of service.Organise a call today
