Meet Laurie, the friendly face behind Simply Helping North East Melbourne Vic. Laurie is a self-motivated, personable manager with over 15 years’ experience in business operations, management and compliance. She enjoys a challenge and being connected with people from all walks of life. This includes connecting with the community through local sporting organisations as a coach, player, sponsor and volunteer committee member.

Laurie believes that respect, fairness and integrity in both business and personal connections is of the utmost importance. Hence her appreciation of family and friends, who play a major part in the success of the business by providing a constant source of encouragement.

Personal Experience

Laurie was motivated to change careers and start Simply Helping in the local area after watching her grandmother near the end of life. A strong-willed and fiercely independent woman, Laurie’s grandmother was wanting to stay in her own home but struggled to do so without a little extra help. Having had this experience, Laurie was sure there were many others in the same situation, so her new journey began.

What We Do

Established in March 2015, Simply Helping North East Melbourne Vic initially focused on providing aged care in-home services.  With the introduction of the NDIS, our range of in-home care services diversified, along with the Simply Helping team.

We provide genuine assistance to those who need a little extra help. Currently, our range of in-home care services include all aspects of personal care and domestic care. Our services have been designed with you in mind. With assistance, we encourage you to play an active role in your life and support your participation in the community.

Tailored In-Home Care

We are committed to meeting the growing need of in-home care for residents in the Nillumbik, Darebin, Whittlesea, Banyule Shires and surrounds. With our wide range of in-home care supports, we can tailor services to suit your individual needs and the requirements of your family.

Many people comment on our flexible and collaborative service delivery. This allows for more control over the tasks you view as a priority. We also understand the importance of compatibility. Matching you with the right Simply Helping team member by way of language, personality, hobbies or interests goes a long way to making your in-home care experience a positive one.

Understanding the Community

We are a local provider who is big enough to matter but small enough to care. Working closely with support coordinators, case managers and consumers, plus employing locally has given us a great understanding of our demographic. This knowledge and experience underpin the collaborative, person-centred approach to guarantee we can meet your needs.

We have a dedicated team of administrative staff to manage any support and billing enquiries. This ensures you will receive a quick response to any phone, web or email enquiry. It also means you will not experience the frustration of long wait times in phone queues.

Our Team

The Simply Helping team has grown immensely since the early days. Originally Laurie and two other staff members balanced the mix of office operations and domestic care. We are proud to say that an original staff member is still an integral part of our friendly team, which now consists of four administrative staff and more than 60 carers.

Finding the right carers is imperative for your well-being and happiness. During the recruitment process, along with our commitment to quality and professionalism, we only select people who share our common vision to provide meaningful care through positive engagement and empowerment.  We understand that holding the right qualifications is only one aspect of being a carer. We look for people who demonstrate empathy, care, respect and dignity. Our team members are chosen based on personality, presentation and the ability to adapt and work well with varied individuals and circumstances. All Simply Helping team members have passed stringent security checks, are fully insured, and monitored for ongoing compliance.

With Simply Helping North East Melbourne Vic, you can rest assured you are in safe, capable and caring hands.
