Home Care Packages

A Home Care Package can offer a variety of supports at home to assist with your personal care, household tasks, provide respite for your your carer, or to make sure you stay connected with your community. Packages come in four different levels of care, ranging from basic or low levels of care to high and more intense support. 

A HCP will be allocated to you personally and you can make decisions around services, who delivers them, and how involved you want to be in organising these services.

Home Care Packages

Residential Aged Care

If you need more intense care and support that can no longer be provided in your own home it may be time to move into an aged care home. They provide accommodation as well as specific care and services to all residents, including assistance with personal care, meals, support with mobility and communication as well as social and recreational activities.

Aged care homes come in many shapes and sizes and the cost for a place in a home also greatly varies. Understanding the cost involved and seeking advice from an aged care financial advisor can help minimise the cost while getting the best support outcome for your circumstances.

ACAT/S Assessments

To access Government subsidised aged care services you will need to be assessed to determine what kind of care will best meet your needs. The Aged Care Assessment Team/Service is staffed by doctors, nurses, social workers or other health professionals and they will meet with you to work out how much and what sort of help you require.

The ACAT/S will discuss the results of the assessment with you and the options that are available to you to get the help you need. They can also provide you with information to help you with your decision when looking for a service provider that can provide the best care for you.
