A Home Care Package is government supplied funding for older Australians needing care.
A Home Care Package includes services that help you live independently in your own home for longer – you choose when, where and how you need support.
If you are eligible for this funding you can use it to access a range of services to help you at home and connect with your community.
Our Care Coordinators will work with you and/or your Advocate to develop a care plan that suits your individual needs. You will receive a copy of the agreed care plan which can be altered at any time if your circumstances change. Formal reviews are also conducted annually to ensure your support needs are being met. In addition, our experienced and friendly staff are available for you to talk to as required.
Support is available every day of the year.
If you are over 65 years of age and are an Australian citizen, you may be eligible for support.
You will need to contact My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 to find out if you are eligible for a Home Care Package or you can call us on 1800 684 098 and we can help you with My Aged Care.
If you’ve already been approved and assigned a referral code for a Home Care Package you can begin services with Family Based Care Tasmania. Please call us today to organise your services.
We will work with you to come up with a package that meets your budget.
We do not charge entry or exit fees and are transparent and upfront.
