Aged Care

Funding Aged Care

Are you eligible for a subsidy?

Depending on your circumstances, you may not have to pay for the help you receive at home.

The Commonwealth Government provides two types of funding to support older Australians to stay living at home:

  • Commonwealth Home Support Programme
  • Home Care Package

Your eligibility will depend on your personal circumstances. KinCare can help you navigate the system so you get the right funding and the best services and supports for you.

No government funding?

If you are not eligible for government funding, you can also purchase our aged care services privately. We will work with you to develop a care plan tailored to your needs.

Government funding options

Home Care Package

This funding helps to cover the cost of a long-term in-home care plan that supports you to stay living at home for longer.
