If your care needs have changed as you’ve gotten older and you are struggling to do what you used to, obtaining Australian Government Funding is the ideal way to get help from the aged care system.
This may be in the form of: A Home Care Package or The Commonwealth Home Support Programme. To find out if you are eligible for support from the Australian government you can call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 and request an assessment. The outcome of the assessment will determine if you are eligible for a Home Care Package, the Commonwealth Home Support Programme, or neither at that present time.
Even if you are coping well today, it’s important to recognise that your needs will change over time and could change quickly so it’s best to be proactive and get assessed early.
Keep in mind that if your needs change over time, you are able to be reassessed for a higher level of funding.
Ready to take control of your Home Care Package today? Let us be your chosen provider of your aged care journey. Simply give us a call on 1300 497 442 and speak with our friendly team of Care Experts about what you want to get out of your government funded Home Care Package.
After your assessment you will receive a letter from My Aged Care letting you know the outcome of your assessment. If you are eligible for support you will be approved for a specific level (1,2,3 or 4) and placed in the national waiting list for a package to be assigned to you.
The wait time to be assigned a Home Care Package is currently 1-3 months.
When you are assigned your package, you will receive another letter indicating your assigned funding level and an individual referral code. At this time, you’ll need to choose your Home Care Package Provider.
Please note that you may be offered a lower-level package while you are waiting for your priority level package to become available. Accepting the lower-level package will have no impact on your assignment for a higher level.
To apply for a Home Care Package, you need to call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 and ask for an assessment. During the initial call you will be asked a series of questions over the phone to determine if you will proceed to the next step in the process which is an in-person assessment from the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT).
