Local Guardians are the fastest paying company I have worked for. They are diligent about all aspects of carer support and their leadership is the best I have seen in a long time. I will continue to supply care services to Local Guardians as best I can.

My wife has an Aged Care package. Though we employ home care workers directly, Local (& Capital) Guardians have been very professional and helpful in the management, advice and other aspects (medical - advisory support - financial) of her package. We are very satisfied with their costs when compared to some other providers which we have knowledge.

Earlier this year (2022) my wife was funded for Home Care Level 3. I was at a loss as to who to take on as a provider discovering that many of them had all kinds of fees amounting to 30% to 40% of our package. I knew that I could self-manage the package and after continuing to search I found Local Guardians on the Sunshine Coast. Our manager with LG guided me through the entire process of creating the Care Plan and budget and signing us up. After 3 months I was fully managing the package and LG was charging only an 8% overall fee. That meant so many more funds were available to support my wife.
