The Home Care Package Program is funded by the Commonwealth Government. Home Care Packages aim to allow older people to remain living in their own home for longer, by providing a range of ongoing services to assist with day to day activities.
Prior to being eligible for a home care package you need to have an Aged Care Assessment and receive approval. Once your Home Care package is approved and funded you will receive a letter from the Commonwealth Government advising you to find a home care package provider.
