How we can help

A Home Care Package is one form of aged care funding provided by the Australian Government to help older people at home.

Home Care Package services can often be overwhelming and what’s right for one person might not be right for you. Our expert local team can help you get more out of your Home Care Package and will support you through selecting the right services to suit your needs.

A Home Care Package with KinCare brings you more flexibility, more service options, 24 hours a day support, 7 days a week and an individual budget to spend on the services and supports you want, providing you with better value.

You can make your own selection from our vast menu of services with the support of our knowledgeable team.
