Home Care Packages

Home Care Packages

Home care packages are a great solution for someone who wants to carry on living in their home, but does need the assistance of a home carer. The kind of care that you can choose from will depend on how much you or a loved one needs help. It could range from just needing help with self-care and washing, or need full medical support.

Step 1

There are some assessments that you should follow to see what kind of home care package would be needed. To start off with, you need to assess the need. If you think that you or a loved one is in need of care, then you can look at the variety of packages out there that are best suited to your needs. This can be a hard decision to make, but with our support, we can help you without having to compromise on quality of life.

Step 2

If you have assessed the need and decided that home care is the right step, then it is important to register with My Aged Care. You can do this by visiting their website or by calling 1800 200 422. The process is quick and easy, and it will help in the process of getting approved for home care.

Step 3

An ACAT assessment is carried out that could include a nurse, occupational therapist and physiotherapist. ACAT level 3 assessment needs to be done in order to identify the level of home care needed, and help you to get government funding for part of the home care package. The team will visit your home, and if there is a need, you will be contacted by letter after the appointment. The letter will state what they deem appropriate care for you or your loved one, and then things will be put into place.

Step 4

While you wait to be allocated a home care package, getting in touch with providers where you live is a good idea. We can be contacted by phone or email, and you can also use our website to book in a free consultation. When you have decided that you want to use us, it needs to be confirmed with both Aged Care home care packages and ourselves. Then we can start to plan out your home care package and how it can best help your needs and goals.

Levels of Home Care Packages

The ACAT team will help to determine the kind of aged care home care package level that is suitable for you. However, there are some differences between home care packaging levels and the government funding that is.

Home Care Package Level 1

This is the most basic level of care, and is a good choice for people who want to be independent and live independently, but need some support with day-to-day tasks. It could include help with anything from cleaning, laundry, and gardening to other domestic support. According to My Aged Care, the government can fund up to $8,750 with this package.

Home Care Package Level 2

This is a level of package that is suited to those with low care needs, but still want independence. For help with personal care, shopping, transports, and home duties, level two is a suitable option. The Australian Government can fund up to $15,500 with this package.

Home Care Package Level 3

This is an intermediate level of care, and can include help with medication and treatment, transport, health support, home duties, and social support, and it could mean help at home such as ramps being installed. The government can fund up to $34,000 with this package.

Home Care Package Level 4

This is the highest level of home care, and as a result, includes daily visits (twice daily where required). It is best suited for those suffering with conditions like dementia. The package will mean that carers are on hand to assist with transporting, social support, nursing, home duties, and more. The government can fund up to $51,500 with this level of home care package.
