Aged Care/ Home Care

Our qualified Carers will help you live independently through our experienced and compassionate home care.

What are Home Care Packages?

The Australian government has launched a programme called Home Care Packages to support older persons in maintaining their independence at home while interacting with the community. A package of care, services, and case management is subsidised by the programme in order to better fulfil each person’s requirements.

A distinct subsidy amount is assigned to you and paid to your provider for each of the four support levels, which range from basic care to high-level care.

FAQs

What is Home Care?

We understand there’s no place like home. That’s why we offer a wide range of in-home aged care services so you or your loved one can remain living independently at home. From making daily tasks easier with transport to the shops, cooking or cleaning to improving health and wellness, clinical services and more, we’re here to help you maintain your lifestyle at home for longer.

Home Care Services (also commonly referred to as in-home care) can be Government subsidised under either the Commonwealth Home Specific Programme (CHSP) for basic-level care, or Home Care Packages (HCP) for multiple or more complex requirements.

Who is eligible for a home care package?

To be eligible for the Home Care Package program, you need to be:

  • An older person in need of services to help you stay in your home
  • A younger person with dementia or other special car¢ needs that are not met through other specialist services
  • Approved through My Aged Care

How much is a home care package?

There are four levels of care and funding:

Level 1 supports with a basic level of support and is valued at approximately $9,179 per year
Level 2 will fund you for $16,147 worth of services
Level 3 gives you $35,138 worth of services
Level 4 home care package, you receive approximately $53,258 worth of care per year

What's the difference between CHSP and Home Care Packages?

CHSP or the Commonwealth Home Support Program is an entry-level home support program. You need a formal assessment which is organised through My Aged Care, as you would for the Home Care Package program. You do not need an income assessment to access the CHSP program whereas an income assessment is needed for the Home Care Package Program in order to determine whether or not you need to contribute to the cost of your care.
On CHSP, you would be provided with the specific individual services you need, whereas a Home Care Package is more flexible. You can book and change the type of services as you need to as well as purchase products using your package funds.

Who will provide my care?
