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.
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.
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.
If you end up in hospital for a time due to a health problem and are soon to be released back to your home, you may want to engage the Transition Care Program which can assist you in transitioning back into everyday life.
