Home Care Packages
Home Care Packages support people to continue living at home as they age and provide a real alternative to nursing home accommodation for most people.
The Package can be used to purchase a wide range of services to enable you to maintain independence and safety in your home. And you choose the mix of services that are best for your particular circumstances. The Department of Health and Aged Care has published a document that outlines what can and cannot be purchased from the Package (see pages 60 to 80): Click here to access the Care Recipient's manual.
You can decide to top up the funds provided by the government or purchase additional support if you feel it is needed. The Commonwealth Government assesses whether you are required to pay an income tested contribution toward the Package.
We provide a quality service and strong value for money. Our standard fees are listed here.
