Any older person who is experiencing difficulty managing at home may be eligible for a Home Care Package.
HammondCare At Home Kyogle can guide you through the application process of home care, which begins with a My Aged Care assessment.
How this works is that if your care needs indicate that you might be eligible for a Home Care Package, My Aged Care will organise for an assessment team to complete a free assessment.
My Aged Care will write to you to let you know the outcome of your assessment, the level of care you are eligible for and approved to receive, as well as an overview of that care.
The time it takes to receive My Aged Care approval can vary depending on the length of the national package waitlist, however, there are options available through HammondCare, which will allow you to access care shortly after you have had your assessment.
