home care

 

Maintain your independence and get more out of life with our home care and support.

Whether you’re seeking basic, complex or high home care support on a temporary or ongoing basis, we are here to assist you to do more of what you enjoy and make the most of life.

Why we're different

If you are aged 65 and over and looking for home care and support, you've come to the right place. At CCNB we manage government-subsidised and privately-funded in-home care and support services specifically tailored to suit your needs. 

You will find us very different from other home care providers. We have the lowest fees in the market place and we don't hire in-home services directly. We contract out to the home care agency of your choice - finding you best one that meets your needs, at the best price. This offers you the greatest flexibility and control over your services.

Organising in-home care can be challenging:

  • What support do I need?
  • Where do I find those services?
  • How do I pay for it?
  • How do I manage it all?

You don't need to struggle with this on your own. Draw on our expert advice so you can make better, more informed decisions on care and support that meets your individual needs.

Home Care Packages

Home care

We specialise in Home Care Packages

A Home Care Package is financial subsidy received from the Australian Government to help older people obtain the necessary care to live safely and independently at home. Home Care Packages are delivered with a "consumer directed care approach", which means you are given a budget for your support services and you decide how it is allocated. This approach gives your more choice, flexibility and control over the services you need and want.

Four levels of Home Care Packages offered:

  • Level 1 - basic care needs ($8,045 p.a.*)
  • Level 2 - low-level care needs ($14,633 p.a.*)
  • Level 3 - intermediate care needs ($32,171 p.a.*)
  • Level 4 - high-level care needs ($48,906 p.a.*)

* rate as at 01/07/2016

All Home Care Packages provide you with the flexibility to choose the type of services that are best for you.

To be allocated a Home Care Package, you must be assessed by a member of an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) for a package.

We can help arrange for for an ACAT assessor to visit you, or you can contact My Aged Care, the government portal to aged care support.

If you’re in the process of ACAT assessment or you’re about to be, it’s time to talk to us about finding and choosing the right in-home care provider who will support you to live at home.

Call CCNB on 1300 002 262 to find out more or to get advice and help on navigating the aged care system, or visit myagedcare.gov.au to understand what funding you may be eligible for.
