HCA Home provides in-home support services through Commonwealth aged care funding and for self-funded individuals throughout Australia.
It’s our primary aim to make it easy for you to understand your options and provide flexibility and reliability. We’re always happy to talk and share what we know about aged care.
If you’re eligible for government funding, there are four levels of assistance available to you:
|Level 1: Basic care needs||Level 2: Low-level care needs||Level 3: Intermediate care needs||Level 4: High-level care needs|
|Typically 1 visit a week||Typically 3 – 5 visits a week||Typically 5 – 8 visits a week||Typically daily visits|
If you choose to access Commonwealth aged care funding (called a subsidy) you pay a contribution (known as a fee) towards your home care package and the government provides the rest. Everyone must pay the basic care fee and some people may have to pay an income tested care fee as well.
The subsidy and fee become the total budget you’ll have to spend on your care. You’ll be able to use your budget to get help with personal care, home assistance, social activities, shopping, making meals, respite care and health needs. Your budget doesn’t cover food, rent, medicines or travel costs.
Any aged care provider you choose will charge a fee costed to the budget for managing the care and services you need. HCA Home just charges one simple management fee. Your case manager will be a qualified nurse who understands your health needs and how best to make your everyday life easier.
In addition to Commonwealth aged care funding, you can also choose to just pay for what you need, when you need it.
