Home Care Packages (HCP)

Your kind of care

The Home Care Package program is designed to provide older people with the necessary support to live independently in their own home.

We understand that ageing is an individual process and requires a special type of care with a genuine, heartfelt approach to ensure you are at the forefront of your own care and choices.

Aged Care services are all about consumer-directed care. This is core to our values – supporting you with your choices of how you want to live, enabling you to stay at home, in optimal health and in a safe environment, and maintaining your independence, is key to everything we do.

We know that it is important for you to be at the steering wheel of your own life, and that’s why we have a specialised team of Client Care Liaisons, all of which are experienced nurses, who will get to know you and work closely with you and your loved ones.  We will tailor a plan specifically aimed to help you get the most value out of your home care package, based on your wants, needs and goals.

Fees

There are two types of fees for Home Care Packages: 

  • Basic Daily Fee
  • Income Tested Fee (ITF) 

The Basic Daily Fee is applied when your service needs exceed the funding provided by the commonwealth to ensure all care requirements are met. 

The Income Tested Fee is mandated by Services Australia and is a copayment towards your Home Care Package as assessment by Centrelink. 

If you are a full pensioner with no external income, it is unlikely you will have an ITF. If you are a self-funded retiree or have superannuation or external income it is likely you will have an income-tested fee. All providers are required to collect this fee on behalf of Services Australia.
