What is a Home Care Package?

A Home Care Package is part of an Australian Government subsidised program designed to offer support to older persons who want to continue living independently in their own home, but may need assistance with some daily living activities.

To see if you qualify for a Home Care Package, you will need to be assessed by My Aged Care to establish the level of care you need.  The Home Care Package program offers four package levels, ranging from basic care through to a high-level of care needs, and My Aged Care work with you and qualified assessors in determining your needs.

If you are allocated a Home Care Package, you will need to select a Home Care service provider, and they will be responsible for administering the funds on your behalf.
