Anglicare Tasmania's Aged Home Care Services

Looking for help at home?

Anglicare is a leader in providing aged home care services throughout Tasmania. We are committed to supporting positive ageing and maintaining independence at home.

Our aged home care support services are in-line with those funded by the Australian Government My Aged Care packages:

  • Home Care Package (complex care)
  • Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) (entry-level care)
  • Veterans Home Care (VHC) Program

We also provide services funded by the Tasmanian Government Tasmanian Home and Community Care (Tas HACC) Program.
 
If you do not currently have government funding we can also provide self-funded at home care support.

Which program suits you?

1

Are you under 65?

If you are under 65 of age (or under 50 for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander origin) you may be eligible for the Tasmanian HACC program.

HACC funds community services for eligible people, and their carers, if their capacity for independent living is at risk due to a health event, an ongoing health condition or they are not eligible for NDIS.

You need to be referred to the program through the Tasmanian Community Care Referral Service.  You, your family, your carers, health professionals and other service providers can refer by contacting the TCCRS on 1300 769 699 (during office hours) or email tasccrservice@rdns.com.au

Are you over 65?

Are you a veteran or war widower?

The Veterans’ Home Care Program (VHC) helps eligible veterans and their dependents who need low-level care at their own homes.  You must have a Veteran Gold Card or Veteran White Card.

You can contact the VHC Assessment Agency directly on 1300 550 450 to discuss an assessment for services.
