Home Care can help elderly people by providing part-time services such as housework, meal preparation and health care. To determine to what extent of Home Care is needed, the individual needs to be assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) which in most cases will be free.

They will place the individual into one of four categories:

  • Level 1 - basic care needs
  • Level 2 - low level care needs
  • Level 3 - intermediate care needs
  • Level 4 - high level care needs
