Home Care

Home Care Packages (HCP)

A Home Care Package provides Government funded services that will help you to remain at home for as long as possible, as well as providing choice and flexibility in the way that the care and support is provided.

  1. Costs for Home Care

    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.

  2. 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.

  3. Assessing your needs and eligibility

    To work out exactly what kind of help you need at home, you need to be assessed. If you would like Government assistance for home support, this starts with an initial screening when you get in touch with the My Aged Care contact centre.

  4. Home and Community Care (HACC)

    The HACC program only operates in WA and provides a range of basic home support services so you can continue living independently at home for longer.

  5. Centre Based Care (CBC)

    Living independently and engaging with people in social groups can be difficult as a person grows older – but it’s not impossible.

  6. Day Therapy Centres (DTC)

    Day Therapy Centres offer physiotherapy, occupational and speech therapy, podiatry and other therapy services to older people living in the community and who are residents of Commonwealth funded aged care homes.

  7. Respite Care

    Caring for a loved one is a valuable and rewarding job but also a tough one, and as a carer it’s easy to forget about your own well being. 

  8. Transition Care

    The Transition Care Program provides short term support and assistance for older people after completing any necessary acute and sub-acute care in a hospital.

  9. Veterans Care

    If you are a veteran, war widow or war widower, there are a number of age care services supported by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) that you may be able to access.

  10. Case Managers

    It is possible to remain living in your own home with a little bit of help. However, with so many services available, it can be challenging to know where to start and which one to use.

  11. Financial Advisors

    Dealing with complex financial issues at a time when your main concern is the health and welfare of loved ones can be challenging, not to mention time consuming and very confusing.

  12. Placement Consultants

    Needing to place a loved one into an aged care home can be a highly stressful event for families and carers.

  13. How to maintain and improve mobility and reduce falls

    As we get older it can get more difficult to move around. Reduced mobility contributes to a range of other health problems and can affect your overall wellbeing. From a loss of independence to social isolation and not being able to do what you used to do, to stay healthy, happy and in your home longer, regular exercise is paramount!
