Aged Care Home Packages
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. Some people receive services through the Commonwealth Home Support Programme and are then assessed for a home care package. Others will start with a home care package.
The benefit of a home care package is that your home care provider will work with you to:
- choose care and services that best meet your needs and goals
- manage your care and services.
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.
It is expected that more people will be assessed as eligible for a lower level package, with a smaller number being assessed as needing higher level packages.
