Home Care Packages
What is a Home Care Package?
A Home Care Package (HCP) is a Government subsidised service to help older Australian’s live independently at home for longer. Each HCP Level is tailored to meet the individuals needs and lifestyle to provide them with support and assistance they need with everyday tasks. The types of support available through a Home Care Package include help with domestic assistance, personal care, respite, meals and food preparation, transport, shopping, allied health, social support and more.
