Who are Mark & Sylvie?

Mark and Sylvia Gomes were two migrants who emigrated from India to Australia in 1983.  They got off the plane, both aged over 40, with a total of $200 in their pockets and four kids. 

Their lives were dominated by the sole mission of raising their four children to the best of their ability and creating a better future for them.  Dr Floyd Gomes, founder of Mark & Sylvie’s Home Care is the youngest of those four children.

They allowed me to enjoy life again

John suffered from a chronic back condition and was often in pain. He was able to see an occupational therapist (OT) through Mark & Sylvie’s Home Care network.

Following a recommendation from the OT, he received a mattress that had been specially tailored to his needs. John’s back pain improved greatly and he was able to rest easy, knowing that his package covered the entire cost of the new set up!

Helping with your questions

To be approved for a home care package, you must have an assessment done by My Aged Care. If you need help to navigate the My Aged Care system, let us know.

Anyone is free to swap providers, at any time they like. You will have to let your current provider know that you like to swap. There will be a waiting period, usually around 1 or 2 weeks, and there may be an exit fee payable as well. You will also need to let My Aged care know, and they will re activate the referral code.

Telehealth and Remote Patient Monitoring

There are many ways that technology can assist and improve care at home. Many of these are now rapidly advancing. Finding which technological aid is best suited for you, and indeed, when and how to use them, can be tricky.
