Home Care Package Coordination

Carers ACT operate Home Care Package co-ordination services for people living in the ACT and surrounding region.


What is a Home Care Package

The Home Care Packages Program helps older Australians with complex care needs to live independently in their own homes.  The Australian Government provides a subsidy to an approved provider of home care to coordinate a package of care, services and case management for the individual.

Individuals are assessed by a professional assessor where each individual’s priority for care is determined according to four levels of support:

Package level Level of care needs
Level 1 Basic care needs – approximately $8,900 a year
Level 2 Low care needs – approximately $15,700 a year
Level 3 Intermediate care needs – approximately $34,000 a year
Level 4 High care needs – approximately $51,600 a year

* These figures are rounded.

You work with your chosen provider to identify your care needs and decide how best to spend your package funding. Your service provider coordinates and can manage your services for you on your behalf.

Individuals approved for a home care package are placed on a national queue until a package becomes available and is assigned to them.
