What is a Home Care Package?

A Home Care Package is a coordinated package of care and services to help you to live independently in your own home and community for as long as you can.

Home Care Packages are allocated by My Aged Care.  To access Home Care Package funding  you will be required to undergo a comprehensive assessment to determine the help that you need and the level of services that may be best for you.
