Home Care Packages
Funded by the Commonwealth Government, Home Care Packages (HCP) provide long term support for older people aged 65 years and over, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders 50 years and over – so that they can maintain their independence at home. Packages are designed to be flexible and on demand – in line with the government’s new consumer directed care approach (CDC). Under Consumer Directed Care (CDC) the consumer (you) can choose the services you want, how and when you want them delivered – and by a preferred service provider.
A Home Care Package enables you to personalise your support services so you can live a healthy, safe and independent life in the comfort of your own home and to stay connected to your community.
Home Care Packages are available in four levels of care.
