Who provides these services?
Services are provided by a variety of organisations across Australia. To find out what Home Care Package providers are near you, use our Find a provider tool.
How does it work?
You choose a service provider that is right for you. The government then pays your provider a subsidy to arrange a package of care services to meet your needs.
As everyone’s care needs are different, there are four levels of Home Care Packages with different funding amounts. These cover basic support needs through to high care needs.
The package level assigned to you is based on your needs. (as of 1st July, 2023)
|Package level||Level of care needs|
|Level 1||Basic care needs – $9,179.75 a year|
|Level 2||Low care needs – $16,147.60 a year|
|Level 3||Intermediate care needs – $35,138.55 a year|
|Level 4||High care needs – $53,268.10 a year|

You work with your chosen provider to identify your care needs and decide how best to spend your package funding. Your service provider coordinates and can manage your services for you on your behalf.
