It was the best decision to move to Local Guardians to manage my husband's care package. Julie always goes the extra mile on our behalf and responds to any queries efficiently. It is such a relief as our previous provider could take days to respond to any request. The monthly fees for the package are also considerably less which means that more funds are available for my husband's care. I would highly recommend checking out Local Guardians to manage a care package for your loved one.

Our first experiences with the Home Care Package were daunting. Selecting a provider was not simple and the needs of our mother complex. After researching providers and engaging with a number, we selected Local Guardians. We have not been disappointed, Local Guardians provided the most effective and informative advice for the provision of care and its planning; and continue to do so. This expert advice has made everything much easier to understand and we are grateful for the support our mother receives. Our sincere thanks to the Local Guardians staff we encountered from the first point of contact and to our Care Manager, Sheila for her extraordinary care and support.

Local Guardians are the best among the myAgeCare recommended Home Care Providers. I have researched over 100 providers individually and found them for my mum's Home Care needs. They offer the best rates in Victoria, the customer service is implacable, especially the senior home care advisor Sheila Ahmed, who has a degree in Psychology is very polite, helpful, prompt and enthusiastic and energetic young lady, it was been a great pleasure to work with her. Once you contact Sheila consider it been done. I have worked with Melanie Raman on Sheila's absence she is fantastic too. I strongly recommend Local Guardians to everyone who is looking for a Home Care provider, search no further sign up with Local Guardians!

I changed over to Local Guardians as a home care provider for someone in my family a couple of months, which has been excellent. Our care advisor Shiela Ahmed is providing fantastic support, is knowledgeable, communicative and very efficient.
