What is a Home Care Package?

As people age, they can develop conditions or experience increased frailties which impede the ability to continue living in their own home longer. A Home Care Package plays an important role in promoting independence and autonomy by providing subsidised packaged services that support older people to remain in their own home longer.

A Home Care Package (HCP) is defined as four levels of consumer directed coordinated packages of services to meet a person’s specific care needs, including personal care, support services, transport, clinical care and allied health services.

The four levels of a Home Care Packages include:

  • Level 1 supports people with basic care needs.
  • Level 2 supports people with low-level care needs.
  • Level 3 supports people with intermediate care needs.
  • Level 4 supports people with high-level care needs.

The aim of a Home Care Package is to help older people live as independently as possible, with a focus on working with you, rather than doing for you. Home Care Packages are about building on your strengths, capacity and goals to promote your ability to remain living in your own home longer.
