The steps to access home care funding

Understanding home care

What is a 'Home Care Package'?

A government-funded support package catering to your unique needs and goals providing long-term care and support, without the financial burden.

Once set up, accessing benefits is easy and you can live independently with reliable support.

What is home care?

Home care is one of the options for accessing care and support services as your care needs change. Home care services provide tailored support at home with the management of daily tasks to help you live independently in your home for longer.

How do I access a Home Care Package?

How do I access a Home Care Package?

You'll start by contacting MyAgedCare for an assessment. After that, there are just three simple steps to getting the support you need. But don't worry, we're here to help at every stage!

Step 1 - Complete an ACAT assessment to be recommended for a suitable package.

Step 2 - Speak to your Aveo Case Manager to decide what services you require

Step 3 - Enjoy life, supported by Aveo and a Government-funded care package

Home Care Package fees, simplified

There are two ways your home care package could be funded or a mix of both should you be waiting for your government-funded package to be approved but need the services sooner.

Government funding

Thinking about the cost of care can be daunting, but the great news is that Government-funded Home Care Packages are designed to provide you with long-term, personalised support without financial barriers.

As an approved Home Care Package provider, we can help you access and manage those funds with ease, so you can feel confident that you’re getting the most out of your funding.

Fee for service

If you are waiting for funding approval or need extra support beyond your Home Care Package provisions, our fee-for-service option offers a great alternative.

Choose to simply pay for the services you want as you please with our fee-for-service option, without the need for government assessment. Another option to empower you to manage your care.
