Home Care Packages (HCP)
HCP is a government funded program that provides more flexible on demand care, delivered per the government’s new consumer directed care approach (CDC).
Under Consumer Directed Care (CDC) the consumer chooses the services they want, how and when they want them delivered and by a preferred service provider of their choice.
Package services are ideal for individuals who prefer and need more tailored support to promote their lifestyle and well being. Packages provide the flexibility to mix services depending on each individual’s desired needs and wishes, interests and general lifestyle.
Our HCP packages are currently offered in Inner West, South West & South East Sydney.
To find out more about services we offer in your area contact us on 02 9728 6199.
To receive a package you must contact My Aged Care or ACAT (Aged Care Assessment Team) for an assessment. Individuals who are eligible for a package receive specified funds/resources and, together with the assistance of a dedicated care coordinator, they can select and purchase services to best meet their care needs or wishes.
Multicultural Care offers four package services levels depending on each individual’s needs and circumstances:
- Levels 1 & 2 packages provide help with basic needs.
- Levels 3 & 4 packages are designed to assist individuals with intermediate to high care needs.
Regardless of the packages chosen, our services are always delivered in a caring, respectful, reliable and professional manner. We take the time to get to know the client, understand their needs and wishes and ensure sure they are satisfied with the level of care they receive from their dedicated support staff. Our aim is to assist clients with selecting the most appropriate package based on their needs and assign a care worker suitable to their cultural and language needs.

Difference between a Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) and Home Care Package (HCP)
Home Care Packages differ from Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) in that they provide more flexibility and a coordinated package of services with the support of a dedicated care coordinator.
Together with your care coordinator you will have a personalised care plan and an individualised budget and a service plan that best meets your goals and needs.
