Aged Care

Aged Care Funding

Depending on your situation, you may be eligible for government funding to help pay for the services you need to stay living at home for longer.

Government funding

The Commonwealth Government provides two types of aged care funding to help cover the cost of services to support older Australians to stay living in their own homes for longer.

These funding options are called:

  • Home Care Package
  • Commonwealth Home Support Programme

The type and amount of funding you are eligible for will depend on your individual circumstances. Depending on your situation, government funding may fully or partially cover the cost of the in-home services you need.

KinCare can help you understand what is right for you. We’ll support you to navigate the system, complete your application and access the best supports for you.

Government funding options

Home Care Package

A Home Care Package helps to cover the cost of a long-term in-home care plan that supports you to stay living in your own home for longer.

This type of funding allows you to manage your budget in the best way for you. You’ll be able to access the services you need at the time that’s right for you.

KinCare’s exceptional team of qualified Nurses, Allied Health Professionals and Home Care Workers will ensure you have all the supports you need.

Home Care Package Costs

Understanding Home Care Package services and fees can be overwhelming. What is right for one person may not be right for you.

KinCare has the knowledge and experience to help you get more from your Home Care Package. Our team provides support so you can better understand your care plan and the costs of the services we provide.
