What is Care Call?

Peace of mind to keep you living independently at home

Care Call is our telephone assurance service that offers scheduled phone calls to check-in on older Australians.

This support service helps you live safely and independently in your own home with a peace of mind for both yourself and your family members.

This flexible, affordable check-in call can be daily or as often as you like.

Responsive assistance

Our Care Call service provides a friendly and helpful reminder for things that are easy to forget and can be tailored to the needs of each person. If something seems amiss, we can act quickly to help.

Real people on the other end of the line

At Whiddon, we value human interactions and know that meaningful connection supports wellbeing. That’s why our Care Call service isn’t an automated service but a proper conversation with a member of our dedicated customer service team.

You have the opportunity to choose what you want to talk about and personalise these calls to suit you.
