A Home Care Package is a program funded by the government that gives you access to support services that can assist you to stay living at home and feeling confident and connected to your local community.
A Home Care Package offers:
- A wide range of services from personal care to health services, and even the purchase of consumables and equipment.
- Access to a dedicated Care Advisor who will ensure you receive the most appropriate support possible, taking away the stress of managing your own care arrangements.
- Funds that are dedicated to your needs each year, putting you in control. If you don’t use all your funds in the twelve month period, they will be rolled over into the next year for use.
- Reassurance. Once you have a package, it stays in place for the long term. If your needs should change, we can help you apply for a higher level Home Care Package.
If you’re over 65 or aged 50 years or older and identify as an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person you can request an assessment and apply for a Home Care Package via My Aged Care. Our friendly staff can also guide you through the process of applying for funding.
