2
Self-funded
3
A combination of both

Select a funding option below:

Home Care Package

The Home Care Packages program provides government-funded home care across four levels of support to help you keep your independence and lifestyle and live in your own home for longer.

Depending on your situation, you may be eligible for a Home Care package ranging from levels 1-4. The difference between the levels is the amount of support you require to meet your needs, and the amount of funding you require to deliver the services to you. 

When you apply for a Home Care Package, an assessment of your specific needs will determine the level of support you need and the amount of funding you receive.

Our dedicated team will help you apply for and receive a Home Care Package, understand your budget and know what you can spend this on.

We can also help you look at ways you might get other support while you wait for your Home Care Package to be approved. This could be government or privately funded.

To start, give us a call or contact us via email. One of our friendly team will help you with arranging an assessment.
