How much can home care cost?

The Australian Government subsidises the delivery of home care services and packages. However, if you can afford to, you are expected to contribute to the cost of your care.

  1. How to continue funding your new life in retirement

    It can be confronting to hear from financial advisers and experts that to retire comfortably, you will need to save up to $1.2 million depending on your personal circumstances. 

    As that might not be an attainable option for some, there are ways to ensure there is a steady stream of income coming in every week to ensure you can enjoy a comfortable retirement.

  2. Nursing Home Fee Estimator

    Use the Nursing home fee estimator to help you to work out an estimate of what costs and fees you'll be asked to pay when accessing aged care services.

  3. Home Care Package Fee Estimator

    Use the home care fee estimator to help you to work out an estimate of what costs and fees you'll be asked to pay when accessing aged care services in your home.

  4. Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP)

    If you want to stay in your own home, but need some help with daily tasks, or require entry level care, the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) may be able to help.

  5. How much can a retirement village cost?

    There are several charges and fees associated with living in a retirement village, and all payments made before, during and after living in a retirement village must be specified in the entry agreement contract.

  6. Reverse mortgaging your House

    If you are finding it financially difficult to enter an aged care facility, and are afraid you may have to sell your home in order to make the payment, a reverse mortgage is one option you may consider.
