Government-funded Home Care Packages are designed to help you live at home and continue doing the things that make you happy.
Central Highlands Rural Health is your local Home Care Package provider. Many of our staff live and work in our local communities.
Maybe you need a hand with the shopping, running errands or with your personal care. We’re here to help. Our job is to ensure things are easier and more manageable for you.
We offer Level 2, Level 3 and Level 4 Home Care Packages.
We will discuss with you the kinds of services we can provide in your Home Care Package. Then we will work with you to design a specific care plan based on your needs and provide you with a personalised Home Care Agreement.
Eligibility for a Home Care Package is determined by the Aged Care Assessment Service. This assessment is free and conducted in your home by experienced professionals.
Home care packages are income-tested by the government. If your circumstances allow, you may be asked to contribute to the cost of your care. If you are assessed as eligible for a home care package you can use the fee estimator to help calculate your costs in My Aged Care www.myagedcare.gov.au.
You can discuss and agree to any fees with us before you receive services.
