Home Care Packages

Are you over 65 years and:

– would like to continue living at home but need help to navigate the aged care system? or

– have been assigned a Home Care Package and looking for a quality provider?

   

We can help you:

– If you want to navigate the aged care system and haven’t been assessed or assigned for a Home Care Package- we can meet with you to provide you with the information you need.

– If you have been assigned a Home Care Package and would like to know what services are available to you and how care can be delivered we can assist by meeting you and providing you with the information that you need.

The team at IPC Health are highly skilled and experienced. Our qualified Case Managers can help you to plan and start care and services that you need.

As your care needs change, they help you to change the services to meet your care needs. They are your point of contact for any care or future planning to help you to stay independent and living at home for as long as possible.

For more information contact Cathy McQuilken on 9296 1213 or Cathy.McQuilken@ipchealth.com.au

The Home Care Package program 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.

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.

A suitable home care plan may include:

– personal care;
– meal preparation
– shopping assistance
– transport assistance
– nursing
– allied health care such as podiatry, dietetics, physiotherapy, counselling etc to ensure you are safe and well in your own home.
