Home Care Packages

For many people, living in the comfort of their own home, and maintaining strong links in their communities is an important part of growing older. The Home Care Package Program helps older Australians with complex care needs to live independently in their own homes.

The Australian Government through My Aged Care provides a subsidy to an approved provider of home care to co-ordinate a package of care, services, and case management to meet the individual needs of older Australians.

There are 4 levels of support:

  • Level 1 - Basic Care Needs
  • Level 2 - Low Level Care Needs
  • Level 3 - Intermediate Care Needs
  • Level 4 - High Care Needs
