Home Care Package Program
The Home Care Package program is funded by the Commonwealth Government and provides older Australians long-term support and assistance to remain living independently in their own home and community. Home Care Packages are also available for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people over 50 years.
IPC Health is an approved provider of Home Care Packages.
The Home Care Package is used to pay for your coordinated package of services and you can choose who provides the services for your special care needs. The package will give you choice and flexibility in the way your care and services are provided to you at home.
In order to receive a Home Care Package, you, a family member, a trusted friend or IPC Health can help you in contacting My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 or through the website: myagedcare.gov.au
The free Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS) will visit you at home or where you live and will work out the type of care you need. This is important because your care needs will determine the amount of money you receive from your Home Care Package.
IPC Health can help you coordinate your package. When you apply for your Home Care Package, advise the ACAS representative that you want IPC Health to be your care provider.
