Home Care Packages
A Home Care Package is government supplied funding for senior Australians needing care. 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. 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. Services under this program are delivered statewide.
