Home Care Package Coordination Fees

Carers ACT operates Home Care Package co-ordination services for people living in the ACT and surrounding Capital Region.  Carers ACT will be your one point of contact and, in negotiation with you, will book the service providers of your choice for you, saving you time and stress.  Carers ACT provide monthly statements, so you know where you’re up to with your package spending.   Being an independent provider means we broker all our services, so that we can give you the flexibility to choose your provider from our approved provider list and change your service providers should you wish to.  For more information call (02) 6296 9971 or email hcp@carersact.org.au
