Please call HCA Home and we can discuss what would suit your individual needs. We are happy to talk to anyone about aged care, and if we are not suitable, we will find someone who is.
A Home Care Package is funding allocated to you by the Commonwealth Government. The funding is used to help you remain living in your home.
To be eligible for home care funding you must register with the Government’s ‘My Aged Care’. Call HCA Home and one of our friendly consultants can help you with My Aged Care and answer all your questions about aged care.
Both home care and nursing services can be paid for privately.
CDC is an approach used by HCA Home to deliver care that gives you choice and flexibility. You choose the type of assistance you want, control the decisions relating to your life and get relevant help and information.
You can spend your funding in three areas:
The Home Care funding cannot be used as a general source of income such as buying food, paying for medicines, rent or utilities.
Absolutely. Give us a call and talk through what services you require. We will send through a funding plan showing all the costs and fees.
You will be asked to pay a daily contribution (known as a fee) towards your Home Care Package. Everyone must pay the basic daily fee and some people may have to pay the income tested care fee as well. The amount you pay will boost what you can spend on care and support for yourself.
In some circumstances you may be asked to contribute more to your care. Centrelink determine your income tested fee based on your income assessment.
