What is a Home Care Package?

The Home Care Package program, established by the Australian Government, helps older Australians live independently at home. It offers flexible, personalised support based on individual health care needs. Funding is provided after a formal assessment and can include services to help a person stay:

Healthy and independent with personal care, nursing, and Allied Health support

Comfortable and safe at home with cleaning, gardening, home maintenance, and nutritional support

Engaged and connected to the community with transport and social support services

Eligibility is determined by the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). If approved, you will receive funding based on your care needs to help you remain at home. The program offers four levels of funding.

Package level Level of care needs
Level 1 Basic care needs – $10,271.10 a year
Level 2 Low care needs – $18,063.85 a year
Level 3 Intermediate care needs – $39,310.50 a year
Level 4 High care needs – $59,593.55 a year
