Find answers to our most asked Home Care Questions
What is Home Care?
Home care is a range of care and services that help you, or the person you care for, to continue living at home for as long as possible.
Services, in the form of home care packages, range from weekly support around your home to a daily visit to provide personal care, meal preparation, cleaning medication assistance or regular nurse visits.
You will have a dedicated Client Services Manager to support you on your journey.
How much does home care cost?
Home Care is a Government-subsidised service. You may be required to contribute to your funding, depending on your individual circumstances and the services you choose. Your Client Services Manager will work with you to create your budget. All unspent funds roll over each month.
How do I know which home care services I'm eligible for?
The Aged Care assessment team will check your eligibility to access Government-funded aged care services.
To be eligible they will consider your needs, medical conditions and diagnosis, supports available to you, etc.
Your needs may be considered temporary or long term, which will determine if you are eligible for the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) or Packaged Care.
We can help you to identify which services and supports are available for you.
