Home care packages

A Home Care Package delivers a coordinated package of care to meet your individual care needs.

The package provides an allocated amount of funds to allow for more comprehensive support and is tailored to meet individual needs.

There are four levels of home care packages.

  • Level 1 supports people with basic care needs;
  • Level 2 supports people with low-level care needs;
  • Level 3 support people with intermediate care needs;
  • Level 4 support people with high-level, often complex, care needs.

Home care packages are provided on a consumer directed care basis, this means you receive information about the package funding, including an individualised budget and monthly statements. This ensures that you, the client, are in the driving seat.
