What our Members are saying

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

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!"

Max, 83 & Beryl, 81, Victoria

Empathy and understanding

"I spent a great deal of time dealing with various agencies in the Aged Care System. I chose Five Good Friends because of the empathy and understanding of every person I dealt with and this has also been demonstrated by the lovely Jenni who helps me look after Dad."

Margaret, Queensland

Perfectly matched Helpers and continuity 

“Having the same Helpers turn up to see Dad every time is a blessing. I feel relieved to know he's getting great care from Helpers he loves. They were perfectly matched to his personality, he thinks of both Michelle and Ian as family."

Sandra, Queensland
