What is a Home Care Package?
A Home Care Package is a Government subsidised program to help you live at home for life, providing up to $50,000 a year in support services, depending on your assessed needs. The Government provides funding to an approved Home Care provider like Care Connect, who then works with you to understand your needs and coordinate the best care plan, budget and services to suit you. The funding is subject to approval and provides access to a large range of home care services.
There are four levels of packages available designed to support people with different care needs. Care Connect also provides the ability for people to “top up” their Home Care Package funding using their own money, if they require additional services per week.
