Understanding home care packages

What is a home care package?

Home care packages are government-funded subsidies that support older Australians by providing a subsidy towards home services, aimed at:

  • Helping you to remain living independently at home for as long as possible.
  • Providing you with choice and flexibility around how you receive your support.

What does it cover?

Home care packages cover a wide range of services tailored to the type of support you require. From support in and around the home to allied health services and support in the community, there is a service to suit you.

There are four levels of home care packages, each designed to provide you with the support you need now and the flexibility to change as your needs evolve.

The level of funding you receive is determined by an Aged Care Assessment, which is completed through My Aged Care, the Commonwealth Government body responsible for all aged care services.
