Under HCP, as a consumer-directed scheme, you have the right to choose who you work with and the freedom to switch to any provider, at any time. This means you don’t even need a reason to change home care provider: the choice is always yours!

Review your current contract for your notice period and give notice to your current provider.

Don’t just take our word for it – See what our clients say!

Colbrow’s response to my request for overnight nursing care for a client was made in the morning. The service was commenced at 5pm that evening, this included a home visit and client agreements being signed. The nursing staff were compassionate, unobtrusive and provided first class nursing care to my client at a very difficult time. I will certainly be using Colbrow again and recommend others to do the same.

It is approximately a year since the death of my late father John Anthony Kelly of Strathmore, and my formal duties as an executor of his estate are almost at an end. As I complete these duties I feel that it is important to remember to thank those who provided care to my father when he most needed it. In particular, I remember and very much appreciate, as do my sister and two nieces who lived with him, the complex and high level nursing care that your company provided for him during late 2012 and the first half of 2013. We especially wish that Ann’s excellent support be recognised. This care enabled him to stay at home as he wished for much longer than would otherwise have been the case. Thank you all for your good work and may it continue long into the future!

We want to thank you and everyone at Colbrow for all the assistance and care you provided to dad. He was very lucky to be spoiled like he was.

I especially want to thank you for sending Tania and Priyanka to care for him. Priyanka, in particular, went over and beyond to make him comfortable and give him the best care she could. She learnt to play a Lebanese card game and played with him daily to keep his mind active. She even googled how to make Lebanese coffee for him. He was always clean, so was the house. She’s a credit to herself and to Colbrow. We wish her all the best in her future.

I wanted to thank you and your team for all the help and support you have given us over the last few years with Betty and Noel, as they approached the end of their lives. Looking back, it has been an exceptional commitment from Colbrow, which worked out very well and helped provide the means for Betty and Noel to be cared for at home until the end of their lives, as per their wishes. In addition, I have enjoyed working with the Colbrow staff to provide the best possible assistance to two wonderful people when they needed it. It was great that some of the same people could be involved on and off all the way through.

Reviews and Accreditation


Knowledgeable, professional and caring. What a great service!


My husband has Lewy Body dementia and requires 24 hr care. Colbrow have given us two great carers to allow me to have some Repite time. All staff are polite, friendly and helpful. So difficult trying to choose a home care provider. So pleased I chose Colbrow.


I recently had Carpel Tunnel surgery which left me pretty useless as I am already partly disabled. The ladies that Katelyn organised were absolutely fantastic. I have recommended Colbrow to my employee for further staff with injuries.


The team at Colbrow Homecare have been very attentive to dads needs, always putting him first and always accommodating and responsive to our needs. Thank you for everything.
