At myHomecare we understand there may be times in our life that we may need a little help. This may be to get the day started, getting out and about and help around the home. A Home Care Package can support you with a range of complex care needs to live independently in your own home.
A Home Care Package uses a consumer-directed care approach to make sure the support suits your needs and goals, aimed at enhancing your quality of life in your own home.
There are 4 levels of Home Care Packages — from level 1 for basic care needs to level 4 for high care needs, using a coordinated mix of services that can include: help with household tasks, equipment (such as walking frames), minor home modifications, personal care and clinical care such as nursing, allied health and physiotherapy services.
As a leading provider of Home Care Packages, myHomecare has been approved by the Government to deliver subsided care and services to older Australians.
Eligibility for this program is based on your support needs and age. If you’re having trouble with everyday tasks and feel that ongoing help and support could improve your health and wellbeing, a Home Care Package could be right for you.
To be eligible for this program, you must be aged:
A face-to-face assessment will determine eligibility and ensure that the right services are made available to those that need them. If your needs are more complex, a Home Care Package could be better suited to you.

There is a lot of demand for Home Care Packages, so you may need to wait a while before My Aged Care have a package available to assign to you.
