HOME CARE PACKAGE
Home Care Packages
Need assistance from the Government to pay for in-home caregiver or nursing services?
For many reasons, the Commonwealth Government supports the idea of ageing Australians living at home for as long as possible. If you successfully apply for and receive a Government “My Aged Care” Home Care Package, then the money you receive under the package can be used to pay for in-home caregiver or nursing services, and many other support services that you need to stay living comfortably at home with dementia or other health concerns. A Package may be the best starting point to keep living at home, where you feel most happy and secure.
You need an organisation to manage that money, which is held in a holding account on your behalf. This organisation is referred to as a Home Care Package Provider (“Provider”). You may be required to contribute a co-payment, depending on means-testing. The most important thing to know about Home Care Packages, is that you choose how you spend that money! This is called Consumer-Directed Care (CDC).
If you currently have a Package, and you would like Home Care Assistance’s in-home caregiver or nursing services, no problem. Simply let your Provider know, give them our 0430 130 227 phone number, and your Provider will arrange our services for you. We work with all types of Providers. Under CDC laws, your Provider is obligated to procure services on your behalf, just the way you like it! Speak to your Provider today to get our in-home caregiver services. We provide a quality service, guaranteed. Ask us about our money-back guarantee.
If you recently received a Package, and you are planning to invest most of it into our in-home caregiver or nursing services, then we recommend you simply use us as your “Provider”! Yes, Home Care Assistance is a Government-Approved Provider. If you invest most of your Package into our services, then we offer the lowest management fees we are aware of in the Northern Sydney Health District. We will coordinate up to 2 other support services (gardening, spring cleaning, exercise-physiologist falls-prevention exercise programs, chiropractor, or transport services are the most commonly needed services to remain living at home comfortably with dementia or other age-related health concerns). We have lived in the Northern Sydney district, both in the Lower North Shore and the Northern Beaches, for 20 years, so we know the services and value for money in this area inside out.
If you choose us as your Provider, we are always obligated to manage your Package according to your wishes! If at anytime, you wish to use your Package to purchase in-home caregiver services from another company, no problem, we always honour your choices. We can connect you with all the services you need in your local area, we would simply charge higher management fees at that time. Ask us about our rates, they are still competitive (they just won’t be as low as the management fees we reserve for our exclusive clients).

Your Home Care Package is transferable. Have a HCP, but are Unhappy with your current Provider? We offer an alternative to switch to:
- No hidden charges! Better value from your Home Care Package. We meet people who have lost as much as 25%, 30%, even 35% of their Home Care Package in “Admin” and “Case Management” fees levied by other Providers. We will offer you a much better deal. The result? More hours of the in-home caregiver or nursing services you really need; more value from your HCP.
- Friendly, regular and open communication. We offer a personalised service, regular contact and detailed monthly Statements of your HCP.
- Outstanding quality of care and consistency. An individual Care Plan negotiated with you, and regularly reviewed. A caregiver you will like. Schedules you will know in advance.
You can transfer your HCP to us, for better quality and more hours of personalised services per week. Please call us any time on: (02) 8052 3255 Or: send us a query using the form on this page.
