Home Care Packages

Living life on your terms means getting the right services so you can live independently in your own home for longer.

Federal Government subsidised Home Care Packages are designed to give you the support you need to live a fulfilling life where you can do the things you want to do in the company of the people you care most about.

A Home Care Package provides a co-ordinated package of services personalised to meet your specific needs.

Our advisors can work with you to choose the type of care that suits your health and wellness goals and one that enhances your enjoyment of life, suits your personality and your daily routine

Our trusted and helpful staff guide you to develop a care plan which provides the assistance you need in your home at regular times that suit you and your schedule.

Many of our staff who visit you in-home become trusted companions. They get to know you, your lifestyle and routines and become a welcome contributor to your health and wellbeing.

Home Care Packages are funded by the Australian Federal Government and you can choose them to be provided by Catholic Community Services.

There are four levels of packages available which are designed to suit your lifestyle now and into the future.

  • Home Care Levels 1 and 2 for low level or basic needs
  • Home Care Levels 3 and 4 for higher or more complex care needs

Eligibility

Home Care Packages are subsidised by the Federal Government and to be eligible for a package you must be assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT).

An ACAT assessment involves a visit to your home usually by a nurse, social worker or other health professional that comes and talks to you about how well you’re managing in your daily routine.

This assessment includes identifying your care needs and whether a home care package can support you at home, helping you to live the life you want to live.

You can find your local ACAT team by visiting MyAgedCare Website
