Frequently asked questions
What is a Home Care Package?
Home Care Packages are part of a government-subsidised program designed to provide long-term support for older people who want to continue living at home. There are four different levels, each with differing amounts of funding that you can use to buy hours of care or other services and support. These funds are paid to an approved Home Care Package provider of your choice to administer on your behalf. Your provider will also provide individualised care plans, support and advice.
What are the Home Care Package levels?
Home Care Package levels are based on different care and support needs. There are 4 levels, starting at Level 1 for basic care needs all the way up to Level 4 for high-level care needs. The higher the level, the more government funding you receive to help you afford more services.
You’ll be informed which level applies to you after you’ve had an Aged Care Assessment.
Here at Beauty Point Retirement Resort, our onsite nurse means that we provide all 4 levels of home care: 1, 2, 3 & 4.
What are the eligibility criteria for the Home Care Package?
If you are an older person who needs coordinated services to help you stay in your home, you may be eligible for a home care package.
There is no minimum age requirement, citizenship or residency restrictions. However the program is not designed for visitors to Australia or those only needing temporary or short-term care.
As part of the home care package application process, an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) will visit you. They will determine if you are eligible and needing care, as well as your Home Care Package level.
I’m a veteran. Can I still get a Home Care Package?
Yes. If you’re a veteran you can still get a home care package. You can also have a Home Care Package and Veteran’s Home Care at the same time, as well as Veteran’s Mental Health Supplement if you are eligible.
How do I apply for a Home Care Package?
You can call My Aged Care in 1800 200 422. They will ask you some questions to determine if you need an assessment by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). Our team can help you with this.
The ACAT will determine if you are eligible for a home care package and what level best meets your care needs.
What is CDC?
CDC stands for Consumer Directed Care. It is a model of service delivery designed to provide you and your carers with more choice and control over the care and services you access. As of 1 July 2015, all Home Care Packages must follow CDC principles.
How do Home Care Packages take a CDC approach?
Consumer Directed Care is an approach to delivering care. A CDC approach should give you:
Choices about the services you want, when you want them, and who should provide these services.
Control over making decisions about your care
Information and knowledge so that you can make informed decisions
Home Care Packages take a CDC approach. This means that instead of being assigned a provider and generic care plan, you choose an approved Home Care Package provider that suits you best, and co-produce your care plan with them.
Where can I find more information about Home Care Packages and CDC?
You can find more information about Home Care Packages and CDC at www.myagedcare.gov.au.
