Government-funded Home Care Packages are provided in four levels, with different funding for each, from basic care and support needs through to high level care and support.
Home Care during COVID-19 and beyond
In addition to our normal home care, allied health and social support services, we’ve put in place some additional supports to help you get through COVID-19 and maintain your independence and wellbeing at home.
We can boost your existing Government-funded Home Care Package or Commonwealth Home Support Programme services, or we can provide short-term services to ease the burden of the social distancing and isolation requirements in place to reduce the spread and risk of infection.
The Uniting AgeWell team can provide you with all the information you need to get you on your way to health and wellness at home.
Our team will help you access the Australian Government’s My Aged Care gateway, advisory and assessment service, where you can organise an assessment for care.
We will then link you with one of our trained Care Advisers who will meet with you to understand your needs and preferences, and work with you to develop a tailored, flexible Home Care Package, just for you.
