Home care programs

Home care programs

There’s no place like home – but if it’s becoming difficult to manage by yourself there are home care support services available to help.

We can help you understand the different services and programs that are available to help you continue to live at home as you get older.

Funded programs

Depending on your personal circumstances, you may be eligible for government-subsidised home care.

There are two types of home care programs that are subsidised by the Australian Government. Both are designed to help you to live independently at home and meet your changing needs as you get older:

Commonwealth Home Support Programme

Formerly known as Home and Community Care (or ‘HACC’) this program provides basic home support services to help you carry out everyday activities.

It is sometimes offered as a short-term bundle of care.

Home Care Packages

Home Care Packages are designed to help those with more complex needs stay in their home as they get older.

These personalised packages of care are assigned as one of four package types – level 1, 2, 3 or 4 – depending on the complexity of your support needs.

A Home Care Package gives you choice, control and flexibility in the way care is provided.

Getting started

To receive government-subsidised home care, you will start by getting an assessment.

You can also check the costs & contributions associated with each program.
