Aged Care Packages or CACPs are available to older people with multiple support needs who require a moderate
amount of weekly in home care. In some circumstances younger people with a disability may also be eligible
for these packages.
Community Aged Care Packages are an Australian Government Initiative.
In regions in which the Aged Care Assessment Team manages a CACP waitlist for the region, KinCare prioritises ACAT referrals. In other regions KinCare accepts referrals from any source, but eligibility for the service is dependent on an ACAT assessment.
Community aged care packages provide a variety of supports to people with multiple care needs. CACP services
can include domestic assistance, personal care, respite, monitoring of medication, transport for appointments,
shopping and bill-paying, light gardening and social activities.
CACP service plans are developed in consultation with each client. Services are provided to meet assessed needs as determined by a KinCare Program Manager.
Assessments consider client functional capacities and the needs of each client relative to other clients eligible for the service.
KinCare’s services are planned around the needs of each individual client. KinCare can provide services that meet special language, cultural, religious, dietary and other needs.
All KinCare staff have received specialised training to provide in-home care. Staff wear a uniform and photograph identification. All staff employed by KinCare must undergo police and working with children checks.
A contribution is required towards the cost of providing this service. Fees are subject to a fee cap. Special Consideration is available for clients who are assessed as financially disadvantaged.
