Aged Care

 

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

Whether you’re seeking basic support, complex or high care 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 support at home, we can help you. We manage government-subsidised and privately-funded aged care services specifically tailored to suit your needs.

You will find us very different from other home care providers. We don’t hire our carer workforce directly, instead we contract out to a wide range of local care worker agencies – the best ones that meet our customers’ needs, at the best price. This offers you the greatest choice and control over who and when your services are delivered.

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. It means you are given a budget for your care services and you decide how it is allocated. This approach gives your more choice and flexibility to get the services you need.

Four levels of home care support are available:

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

* rate as at 01/01/2017

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 the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) ) who will determine your package level.

If you’re in the process of ACAT assessment or you’re about to be, it’s time to talk.
