How much do Home Care services cost?
Home Care Packages are funded by the Australian Government to help older Australians continue living at home safely and independently.
The funding that you may receive through your Home Care Package can be spent on a wide range of community services such as:
- care services
- social, support
- well-being services
- certain types of equipment and
- home modifications
Because everyone has different needs and goals, the way Home Care funding is spent changes from person to person – it’s important that your care plan is individualised and supports you to achieve your well-being goals.
This is why we’ve developed MyPlan – the first of its kind Aged Care Services price calculator for anyone starting to think about home care services for themselves or their loved ones. This tool allows you to plan your budget and put your costs towards home care services that will support you at home.
Get started with services that support you to stay living at home by selecting one of our pre-made plans . Our plans below have been pre-made to give you a quick estimation of similar services or to give you an idea of the costs and fees for specific services you need.
Start building your own plan or contact us for assistance.
Who can access a Home Care Package?
Home care packages are available to older Australians, wishing to receive additional support from an aged care provider that will allow them to continue living at home safely and independently. The amount of funding you receive will depend on the level of your package. In addition, our team are able to provide you with assistance in navigating MyAgedCare and starting the process of getting an assessment done to receive your package level. Once this assessment is complete, you can begin the process of finding an aged care provider to support you with your goals.
