Home care packages tailored to support you at home
How to get a Home Care Package
My Aged Care, the main access point to the aged care system in Australia, offers the CHSP (Commonwealth Home Support Program) for basic-level needs or short-term care and offers Home Care Packages for individuals who may have more complex needs. Home Care Packages Sydney are meant for older people, but there is no minimum age requirement.
To get a Home Care Package, you will be assessed by the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). The ACAT are professional health and community care clinicians who visit you at home to assess your daily living needs and determine eligibility for the funding program that’s right for you. If you already receive home care services, such as those through CHSP, you may be referred onto a Home Care Package. If you have further questions about home care services or need help at any stage of the process, call us on 1300 134 332 and one of our friendly Customer Care Coordinators will be happy to assist you.Get Support View Fees
What Services do Home Care Packages provide?
Home Care Packages cover a wide range of services from personal care to in-home support, to support that helps you participate in your community. Packages are designed to be flexible and adaptable to your needs. There are four Home Care Package levels.
Level 1: Basic care needs
Level 2: Low-level care needs
Level 3: Intermediate care needs
Level 4: High-level care needs
Each level receives a different amount of government funding. The more support you need, the more funding you receive to access the services you need.
Home Care Package funds aren’t paid directly to you. You choose an approved Home Care Package Provider like Your Side to give you support, advice and help manage your funds. We’ll help you tailor your package to suit your individual needs. If your needs change, your services can change too. We’re here for you.View Fees View Services
