Empower Care

Do you need help managing yours or a loved one’s Home Care Package? Are you struggling with the transition into residential aged care? And do you live in the Brisbane area? 

Carers Queensland can help through our fee-for-service program, Empower Care. Our team can support you to manage your care package, or with the transition to an aged-care facility. We will be with you every step of the way.

Why choose Carers Queensland?

We are an approved Aged Care Provider but we don’t provide in-home or residential aged-care services. This means Carers Queensland can offer impartial advice on support services and help you navigate the often confusing aged-care sector.

Empower Care draws on our years of helping Queensland caring families. Our small, dedicated team, with extensive experience in nursing and social work, is uniquely positioned to ensure you gain access to a suite of services best suited to your situation.
