Hi,
My parents are permanent residents of Australia but they stay overseas. They often visit me in Australia. Both my parents are old and needs support in day to day activities and food preparation. In my home country, they have an in-home support person looking after their needs. I like to sponsor that support person during their next visit. I am happy to provide bond and take care of all his needs during the period. Is there any VISA class I can apply?

Thanks

Sponsored visitor visas are only for family. You can invite them for a normal 600 visa and include in the invitation letter that you will pay their costs and why you are inviting them to come to Australia along with your parents. However it's up to the case officer if they feel the support person should be given a visa and they'd be assessed against the usual criteria, e.g. are they a genuine temporary entrant, will they abide by the visa conditions, will they leave Australia before their visa expires, etc.

If they are a paid support person, the challenge may be that they cannot work while they are in Australia on a visitor visa. So instead you may need to find a local support person to care for your parents while they are here and leave the current support person at home.

Why not hire someone in Australia to help your parents?

I don't believe there is a visa they can qualify for unless they qualify for a WHV type visa.

Visitor Visas can be granted to visit family and friends - suppling aged care is not visiting.

A Carer Visa requires them to be a relative and move to Australia.
