What is a Home Care Package?

Home Care Packages

A Home Care Package is a government subsidised program that provides support for people who wish to stay in their own homes for longer.
Depending on your care needs, there are four levels of Home Care Package and each level receives a different amount of funding to allow you to choose the support that you need. 


What is a Home Care Package

The four levels of Home Care Package support are:

  • Level 1 basic care requirements
  • Level 2 low-level care requirements
  • Level 3 intermediate care requirements
  • Level 4 for high-level care requirements

The higher the level of funding, the more funding the government subsidises on your behalf, for example, the Level 4 Home Care Package will allow you access to the most amount of services. 

To access a Home Care Package, you must first have an assessment with a member of the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) who will visit you in your home and assess your eligibility, and begin you on your journey to supported living.
Please call one of our friendly Suncare team members on 1800 786 227 to help you organise your assessment visit.
