Home Care Packages
You may find that some things are becoming more difficult for you to manage and in order to stay at home you need extra help. A Home Care Package may assist you to do this in conjunction with your family, friends and other community resources.
You can tailor your Home Care Package with Glasshouse Country Care to best support your needs and goals by working in partnership with us. Being partners is an important part of the process, and will help you to get the most out of the care and services available to you.
Each package level has a different amount of funding (subsidy) that is paid to your provider by the Australian Government to deliver your care and services. You can find out more on the subsidy rates at the Department of Social Services’ website www.dss.gov.au.
The range and level of services you receive under your home care package depends on your assessed care needs and the funds available under your Home Care Package. The Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) will do this assessment and choose which level of package is suitable for you.
There are four levels of home care packages:
- Home care level 1: supports people with basic care needs.
- Home care level 2: supports people with low level care needs.
- Home care level 3: supports people with intermediate care needs.
- Home care level 4: supports people with high care needs.
Choose what’s best for your life within your package level!
This is the best part! You tell us what you need and we make it happen, whether that’s getting help with showering or house cleaning, getting your hair done, or organising your transport for social support or shopping.
