Home Care Packages
What is a Home Care Package?
If you’re an older person who wants to continue living at home, but you need some support to do so, then a Home Care Package may be the perfect solution for you.
A Home Care Package is a ‘package’ of personalised services that support you so that you can live a healthy, safe and independent life in the comfort of your home, and to stay active and connected in your community as you get older.
Home Care Packages are funded by the Australian Government and are available in four levels. Our higher-level packages typically offer more hours of care and higher levels of support than our lower level packages. A budget will be allocated for you to use on the support and services that are right for you.
To find out if you’re eligible for a Home Care Package, you will need to be assessed by the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). Find out more about getting an assessment.
