At Home Care Assistance, we care deeply for those in the community and genuinely want your loved one to live a better-quality life.


Paying for In-Home Care

Government Home Care Package

A home care package is a coordinated package of care and services to help you to live independently in your own home for as long as you can. There are four funding levels.

Individuals over 65 (or over 50 if identifying as Indigenous) that have complex needs that make it difficult to remain at home without extra support.

Paying Privately

Sometimes needs change fast and support is needed urgently at home. For short-term or long-term care, we can help. We offer reasonable rates for hourly care with the flexibility that you need.


This might be especially helpful if you need:

  • occasional support (like respite or attending events with assistance 
  • Waiting for your Home Care Package
  • Toping up your current CHSP or Home Care Package

Home Care Package Contributions

How much you will need to contribute towards your Home Care Package is determined by Services Australia based on your financial situation. 

To Determine your Income Tested Care Fee you must get in touch with Services Australia – Aged Care.
