Home Care Packages

Each Home Care Package provides you with a coordinated set of services to assist you with continuing to live in your own home. The types of services you receive will depend on your individual goals and needs.

There are four levels of Home Care Package funded by the Australian Government, each with a different subsidy level.

Level 1 supports people with basic care needs
Level 2 supports people with low-level care needs
Level 3 supports people with intermediate care needs
Level 4 supports people with high care needs

Your Home Care Package is flexible and allows you to design it to build on your strengths and assist you in achieving your personal goals.
