Self-managing your Home Care Package

Why self-manage

Increased hours and better value, as well as more choice and control. You don't have to do away with your independence or get influenced over your life decisions just because you require some help with daily tasks. With a self-managed Home Care Package you opt to retain control.

What is self-management

Anyone who obtains a government-funded Home Care Package has the alternative to 'self-manage' it.
When you self-manage your Home Care Package, you get to make the majority of the decisions regarding how your money is spent to meet your requirements in an ideal way. This includes deciding who will assist you, what they will do, and when they will do it.
