Introduction

As we become older, we can need help with regular activities that we formerly took for granted, such as cooking, cleaning, and taking care of ourselves. People sometimes have complicated medical demands that need continual assistance. Home care packages may provide specialised assistance to assist people in maintaining their independence and staying longer in their own homes.

What are Home Care Packages?

A government funded programme called a home care package offers assistance to those who need help with daily duties. By offering individualised assistance that satisfies each person’s specific requirements, home care packages strive to assist people in maintaining their freedom and quality of life.

How do Home Care Plans Work?

Home care plans are delivered by approved providers who are responsible for assessing an individual’s needs, developing a care plan, and coordinating services. Services may include personal care, household tasks, transport, nursing care, and allied health services such as physiotherapy and occupational therapy.

Who is Eligible for Home Care Packages?

A person must undergo an assessment by the government’s Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) or the Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS) in Victoria in order to qualify for a home care package. A thorough examination that considers a person’s medical, physical, psychological, and social requirements determines eligibility depending on their degree of need.

·       Tailored support that meets individual needs

Level 1 – Basic care needs
