What is a Home Care Package?

Home care package 
Home Care packages are government funded services which are aimed at providing support to senior Australians to assist them to stay independent at home for as long as possible.  To help meet the needs of persons who require different amounts of support the government has provided four different levels of Home Care Packages. The benefit of a home care package is that we will work with you so that you choose the care and services that best suite your needs and goals.   

  • Level 1 Home care package -  provides care to persons who have basic needs, perhaps requiring support only a couple of times a week, or perhaps a combination of support and some other services like lawn mowing. 
  • Level 2 Home care packages - provides assistance to persons who have low level care needs.  This package provides extra funding which may provide for more services, or a greater combination of services, equipment or some specialty services.
  • Level 3 Home Care packages - provides assistance to persons with intermediate care needs.  This level of support would usually include more frequent assistance with a support worker in combination with other speciality services along with support from our Nursing team. 
  • Level 4 Home Care packages - designed for persons with High level care needs.  Often people receiving this level of support have greater Nursing oversight and involvement in their services, along with care provided by support workers and perhaps the provision of specialty equipment or Allied Health services. 
If you have been allocated a Home care Package we can help you tailor a suite of services that best suits your individual needs.
