Healthy independence.

Mark & Sylvie’s Home Care is an approved provider of government funded Home Care Packages, founded by doctors who are passionate about caring for the elderly.

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.

Health Care

Mark & Sylvie's Home Care is uniquely owned and run by local doctors in Melbourne who are passionate about caring for older persons. We maintain strong communication with your own GP and medical team, so that everyone is working together.

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.

Compassionate Care

Mark & Sylvie’s Home Care is an approved provider of government funded Home Care Packages. It is run by doctors who are passionate about caring for older people and helping them to stay living at home safely and healthily.

Personal Care & Companionship

Our carers can help you prepare and cook meals, or arrange for them to be delivered from a provider like Lite n’ Easy. Your Home Care Plan can cover the cost of preparing and transporting meals.

Domestic Assistance & Transportation

We very much value helping an individual stay connected. We can help you with transportation, attend social outing, family gatherings, recreational and volunteer activities.

Nursing

Our enrolled and registered nurses can assist you with your medical needs. This might include providing wound dressings, dispensing medications and administering injections.

Allied Health & Home Maintenance

We have gardeners who can mow your lawns and tidy up your garden. For larger scale jobs involving big trees, we can engage our trusted contractors.

Dementia Support

Dementia is a progressive condition that affects memory, cognitive function, and daily activities. It can be overwhelming for both individuals diagnosed with dementia and their families. Knowledge and understanding are crucial in navigating this journey.

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.

Integrated Care

We know it can be difficult to navigate the complex healthcare system on your own. Our friendly staff will coordinate with your medical providers to ensure an integrated experience so you can focus on getting the care you need.

We focus on helping you stay in regular contact with your general practitioner. Working as a team in this way is by far the best approach for your care.

We can assist you in accessing telehealth services so you can consult a healthcare professional by video or phone in the comfort of your own home.

Enjoy access to a team of:

Live independently and be actively engaged in your health care decisions.

1

Carers who seamlessly coordinate with the GP of your choice.

2

Freedom to pursue the activities you enjoy.

3

Staff who genuinely care about your experience.

Martin's on the move thanks to his new wheels! We understand how important independence is, and we're thrilled to have helped Martin organise this motorised scooter.

It allows him to get around safely and conveniently, keeping him active and engaged in his community. Better look twice before you step onto the footpath- Martin is zooming!

Lioba, one of our fantastic carers, understands the importance of maintaining independence while enjoying life to the fullest. "I wanted to make a difference to people living in their own homes," she says. "I'm able to visit people and help them and I enjoy getting to meet and know all sorts of people this way."

"I feel that I'm a passionate and caring person that makes these clients feel important and special." Lioba takes care to tailor her support to each individual's unique needs and preferences.

Martin certainly enjoys Lioba's company. "I'm quite happy with the service." he says. "Anytime I want something done, Lioba comes and sees me. She has a bit of a laugh at me and I have a bit of a laugh at her too! So you know, we're quite happy about that."

In Keysborough today. What a stunning colour. It’s understandable why so many older persons, striving to live at home for as long as possible, want their gardens to be maintained 🙂 Nature - a simple pleasure, for our whole lives.
