Caring Services We Provide

LingCare provides quality home care and peace of mind

LingCare home care services distinctively meet your loved ones’ care needs, and give you choice and control in the care support needed that enables them to stay independent in their own home.

You can access these services either through a government-subsidised home care package or private self-funding (FlexiCare).

Our Home Care Team will discuss this with you and your family, and will tailor the specific services to suit your loved one’s needs.
