Level 4 for high-level care needs – approximately 10-13 hours per week (average)
Basic chores and home maintenance, such as cleaning and gardening, can all be funded by your Home Care Package. You can also use the subsidy for upgrades and modifications to your home if they’re necessary to keep it safe and accessible (such as adding ramps if you need a wheelchair).
What is a social care package. A care package is a combination of services put together to meet a person’s assessed needs as part of a care plan. The assessment or review is done by a social care professional. It says exactly what that person needs in the way of care, services or equipment to live their life.
|Approved Home Care Package level||Wait time from letter of approval date|
|Level 1||3 – 6 months|
|Level 2||9 – 12 months|
|Level 3||9 – 12 months|
|Level 4||9 – 12 months|
What does a level 2 Home Care Package include? HCP Level 2 care might involve three or four visits a week from a care worker and can include some help with cleaning and tidying around the house, supporting your personal health, such as grooming and dressing or getting some help with meals, shopping and transport.
The Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) helps the elderly and their carers determine what kind of support will best meet their needs when they are struggling in their current living situation.
