Home Care Package

How can you use your Home Care Package funds

It’s a good idea to start with your ‘must haves’ or covering any services you may be receiving through the Council. You need to be realistic about what hours are available in your Package and what your goals are.

If you’re still waiting for your Home Care Package,  it’s time to think of how you can best use your Home Care Package funds to meet your needs so here’s how.

What you can use your Home Care Package funds for

You can access almost anything you need from your Home Care Package funds to keep you safely living at home.

This includes:

  • Cleaning (including window cleaning and Spring Cleaning)
  • Home maintenance and modifications
  • Housekeeping (such as bedlinen changes, washing, hanging out clothes and putting them away)
  • Supportive technologies such as an iPad to keep you connected to your loved one’s or therapeutic pillows or chairs
  • Transport to appointments
  • Nursing services
  • Company at home or home respite for a carer

and the list goes on. It all depends on your needs.

So where to start?
