To assist senior Australians with living independently in their own homes, the Australian Government has created the Home Care Packages Program. This program allows senior Australians to receive the care they need, from the services they choose, for as long as they choose to, in partnership with care providers.
The Australian Government will assess your eligibility for a Home Care Package through an ACAT assessment. If you are deemed eligible, you will be allocated a Home Care Package once one is available. You must then work in partnership with your chosen provider to choose the services that work for you with the yearly government funds you have been allocated.
