Government funding for home care
A Home Care Package is a coordinated package of care and services to help you to live independently in your own home for as long as you can. There are four levels of home care packages to help meet the different levels of care needs. During your aged care assessment, your assessor will discuss your current care needs and determine the best level to meet them.
You may be eligible for a Home Care Package if you are an older person who needs coordinated services to help you to stay in your home, or you’re a younger person with a disability, dementia or other special care needs that are not met through other specialist services.
To find out if you are eligible for a home care package or any other help at home services, call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422. The wait time for a Home Care Package currently sits between 12 – 18 months. Many individuals choose to purchase home care services privately while they are waiting for a Home Care Package.
