To access a Home Care Package, you need a face-to-face assessment (or telehealth during COVID-19) to determine if you’re eligible.

In summary, to be eligible for a Home Care Package, you must be:

  • an older Australian who needs coordinated support and services to help them stay at home and in their community, or
  • a younger person living with a disability, dementia and requiring comprehensive supports that are not being met through other specialist services.

As part of the assessment, you will also complete a financial assessment to work out how much you may be asked to contribute to support and services.
