Home Care, tailored to your needs!
If you, or someone you care about, would benefit from additional assistance which falls beyond the scope of the the Commonwealth Home Support Program then a Home Care Package may be the perfect option.
Home Care Packages provide assistance within the home where it is needed for many everyday tasks, as well as situations in which the needs of the person needing the help become intense or complex. Support is available with services including bathing, hygiene and grooming, nursing, personal care services which relate to health and mobility, meals and food preparation, cleaning and laundry, transport and more!
home care packages are tailored to ensure you receive the support you need whilst being able to still live at home!
Services available through Home Care Packages
Are any other services available?
There are many other services available under the Home Care Package.
We can guide you.
You can call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422. A Home Care Package offers more choice than ever before. However, how much choice depends on your particular service provider. At Country Home Services we utilise independent contractors to deliver services rather than employed staff. By using independent contractors, we have access to a large variety of qualified service providers while still providing quality peace of mind. Our independent contractors undergo ongoing quality auditing, training and all have a criminal history check. More importantly, they are matched to meet the individual’s needs and shared interests.
Home Care Packages
Most importantly, our Home Care Packages are individual suites of services to support your lifestyle. Our purpose is to support your social, physical, emotional, cultural and spiritual needs which means the scope of a Country Home Services Home Care Package is quite exceptional.
From there, the My Aged Care contact centre may refer you for a home support assessment, where a Regional Assessment Service (RAS) assessor will contact you to arrange an in-home assessment.
How can you see if you are eligible?
Eligibility for Home Care Packages is based on the level of support you need. If you are finding that the current support is not sufficient such as through CHSP, then you can apply here.
You must also be:
– an older person who needs coordinated services to help stay at home or
– a younger person with a disability, dementia or other care needs not met through other specialist services.
Your financial situation won’t affect the chance of your eligibility. You won’t need a financial assessment to work out exactly how much you be asked to contribute.
