What our Members are saying

Lady who recieves Home help for her mum.

88% more hours of care per week

“Mum’s 91 and has a Level 4 package plus a dementia supplement valued at $53,797 pa. She was receiving 11 hours/week of care. We switched to Five Good Friends, now she receives 20 hours/ week! The extra care is life changing and the Help App makes it easy to schedule mum’s care, I can see when the Helpers are with her.“

Kathleen 59, Queensland

Lady who receives Home help.

125% more care hours per week

“I have a Level 2 Package worth $14,632 per year and was receiving 2.5 hours per week of care. I changed to Five Good Friends and got 6 hours of care per week. I also moved my surplus across so I have some extra help up my sleeve for my hip operation." 

 

Joan 69, New South Wales

Elderly couple who receive Home help.

40% more hours of care per week

“We have a budget of $10,000 a year for our care that we fund ourselves. We switched to Five Good Friends because we liked their style of caring for us as Members, not just something on their 'to do list'. We also like that we got more care hours for our budget and no penalty rates for a shower on the weekend!"
