What is a Home Care Package?
A Home Care Package provides a co-ordinated package of services tailored to meet your specific care needs to:
• Help you stay in your own home as you get older
• Give you choice and flexibility in the way your care and services are provided to you at home.
To be eligible to receive a home care package service you need a higher level of support than CHSP to assist you to live independently in your home; this can range from a basic care level through to intermediate and high care needs.
To be eligible for a care package you need to be assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) and deemed eligible.
