The services will address your medical, physical, social and psychological needs. 

Examples of available services include physiotherapy, podiatry, occupational therapy, social support and much more.

How much will it cost?

This service is funded by the Commonwealth Government but clients are asked to make a contribution of approximately 5% of the daily costs which equals $10.43 a day.  This is based on 17.5% of the daily aged pension. 

What is home care?

Home care is the name for 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 range from weekly help around the house to a daily visit to provide nursing or personal care.

How much does it cost?

If you access Government-subsidised services, the cost is the same, whatever services you choose. This will be worked out according to your individual circumstances. Any unspent funds accumulate for you to use later on.

How do I know what I’m eligible for?

Depending on your needs and preferences, you may be eligible for Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) or Packaged Care. We can help you find out what you are eligible for. We can also arrange top-up services if you want more than the services available to you under subsidised care.
