Home Care

Service description

A Home Care Package is one form of aged care funding provided by the Australian Government to help older people obtain the necessary care to live safely and independently at home. These packages are delivered with a consumer directed care approach. It means you are given a care budget and you decide how it's allocated. This approach gives your more choice and flexibility to get the services you need.

Four levels of home care support are available:

  • Level 1 - for people with basic care needs
  • Level 2 - for people with low-level care needs
  • Level 3 - for people with intermediate care needs
  • Level 4 - for people with high-level care needs.

All Home Care Packages provide you with the flexibility to choose the type of services that are best for you.

Who is eligible?

  • Older people who need some assistance to remain living in their own homes
  • People with a disability, dementia or other special needs that cannot be met through other specialist services.

To be allocated a Home Care Package, you must be assessed by the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) ) or ACAS (VIC only), who will determine your package level.

If you’re in the process of ACAT/ACAS assessment or you’re about to be, it’s time to talk.

Call KinCare 1300 733 510 to find out more or to get some help navigating the system, or visit myagedcare.gov.au to understand what funding you may be eligible for.
