Home Care Packages (HCP) Level 1 - 4
Aged Care Reforms were introduced as from 27th February 2017
What does that mean for you?
It has created new opportunities for older people and their families. It is a step forward in Consumer Directed Care. You now have more choice about the care you receive at home and who delivers it. Home Care Package recipients are now able to select the provider and services that best suit their individual needs. If you are not happy with your current provider you are now able to change to a different provider easily.
How can you receive a Package?
To access a Home Care Package you need to contact My Aged Care - www.myagedcare.gov.au or phone 1800 200 422.
An assessment will be conducted to determine eligibility for a package. There are four levels of packages/ funding available dependant on the recipient’s needs.
If you are allocated a package you may advise My Aged Care that you would like NDNS to be your provider. In addition if you are currently receiving services under a package and would like to change providers we can assist you through this process.
