Home Care Packages

We’re now a Home Care Package Provider!

We’ve been part of your neighbourhood for more than 40 years. Now as a Provider, we can use our local knowledge to connect people with supports at home, as well as for their health.

Do you know an older person who needs a little extra help to stay living safe and well at home?

Home Care Packages are an Australian Government program that provides a ‘package’ of funds to help eligible older people live well and safely in their own home.

A Home Care Package gives a ‘Package’ of money that can buy services to support a person’s health and care needs. Services may include occupational therapy, physiotherapy, podiatry, exercise groups, help to shower, social groups, transport, help with house work and many other types of help.

What is a Home Care Package Provider?

The Commonwealth Government pays your ‘Package’ of money to an organisation you choose. They will look after the money and organise services for you.

How much will it cost?

There is a daily fee. Some people may need to pay an income tested fee. Talk to us about cost.

Who is it for?

People who need extra support to live safely and well at home.
