Home Care Package Pricing Guide
Helping you to live happily at home is at the heart of what we do. Our services aim to ensure that you receive the quality of care, advice and attention you deserve with your Home Care Package.
We understand it’s important for you to stay in control of your life as you age. Whether you need a little help or more, we make it easier for you to find the right balance of services and support which enable you to stay living at home for life. The cost of your services and the cost of your provider are covered by your Home Care Package. Our costs have two key components:
- Package Management — 13% fee
- Care Management — 15% fee
After your Package & Care Management fees you have 72% of your Home Care Package to spend on services.
Your Package Management fee covers the regulated activities Care Connect needs to fulfil in order to manage your Home Care Package. This includes the setting up and management of the funding subsidy through Medicare, government reporting, quality reviews, and compliance auditing. An itemised monthly statement will also be sent to help you keep track of your funding and services.
Care Management is an essential key component of every Home Care Package. It ensures you receive the appropriate level of support in a way that meets your current and future care needs. Care management may be provided in different ways including face-to-face or via phone or email — your dedicated Client Adviser will discuss with you how much Care Management you need and how you want it delivered. It also gives you access to our dedicated Care Centre team who manage and co-ordinate all of your services.
Care Management Includes:
- Dedicated Client Adviser
- Care Plan development and ongoing review
- Service scheduling and coordination
- Services tailored to your individual needs and cultural requirements
- Safety risk assessment and monitoring of your health and wellbeing progress
- Annual review of Home Care Agreement.
