What is a Home Care Package, and how does it work?
A Home Care Package is a planned set of services and care designed to help you stay as independent as possible in your own home for as long as possible. It is just for persons above the age of 65.
Some people are considered for a Home Care Package after receiving assistance under the Commonwealth Home Support Programme. Others will begin by obtaining a Home Care Package.
To satisfy the various degrees of care demands, there are four kinds of home care packages.
You or the person who needs care or support will need an ACAT evaluation to get a Home Care Package. To schedule an assessment, go to the My Aged Care portal.
The evaluator will discuss your present care requirements and identify the optimum level of care to meet them during an ACAT evaluation.
It is projected that a larger number of persons will be determined to be eligible for a lower-level package, while a smaller number will be determined to require higher-level packages.
