Home Care in Sydney

Home Care in Sydney can help elderly people by providing part-time services such as housework, meal preparation, health care et cetera. Therefore if you or someone you know needs help with these tasks but is not ready to move into residential aged care, then Home Care may be something to consider.

To determine what extent of Home Care is needed, the individual needs to be assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) which should be free. This assessment will determine the level of Home Care Package needed.

Government Programs

A Home Care Package is a coordinated and flexible package that allows individuals to remain living in the comfort of their own homes. Each Home Care Package is tailored in order to cater for a variety of care needs. 

There are currently four levels of Home Care Packages:

Home Care Packages receive funding from the federal Government, however if you are able to do so, you may be asked to make a contribution towards your Home Care Package costs.

Private Providers and Not-for-Profit Organisations

Not-for-profit organisations may also provide Home Care and therefore with a charitable reduction.
