Home care packages
Home care packages provide a range of individually tailored services for people who require assistance in their homes.
The client is provided with an individualised budget and is able to choose how they wish to spend the money.
The funds include the subsidy provided for the package and the fees paid by the client.
There are four levels of home care package that are allocated based on the needs of the client - the higher the care needs the more funds available in the clients budget for services.
The Federal Government is the funding body and has developed a recommended fee structure for home care packages.
Boandik Community Care will determine the fees based on individual financial assessments.
To be eligible for services through a home care package, the client will need an approval from the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT).
Referrals to ACAT can be made through the My Aged Care website, or by calling My Aged Care on 1800 200 422.
