Home Care Packages – A coordinated mix of services for complex health needs.
Home care packages are designed to help you get more out of life.
If you, or a partner, has complex health needs, you can use a home care package to assist. This can help you to keep living independently and stay part of the community.
You can use a home care package to find a personalised care worker for a range of tasks. Everything from allied health needs to help around the home and accessing your community to cleaning up around the house.
A home care package is a service subsidised by the Government for an older person approved by the ACAT aged care assessment team experiencing difficulty managing at home.
You might require temporary assistance, or a long-term solution.
It could be something big that helps you get through the day or something to just help you stay in touch with the community.
Therefore, My Way home care packages and support are tailored to suit your needs.
A range of different services can be provided, depending on the level of home care package you’re eligible for and the assistance you require.
To receive a Government-subsidised home care package, you first need to contact My Aged Care by calling 1800 200 422 or visiting myagedcare.gov.au.
Your needs will be assessed and if eligible, your name will be put on the national package waitlist. Once you have been assigned a package, this is when it’s time to select an approved home care provider.
You can choose to nominate My Way Disability and Aged care as your preferred provider or ring us directly so we can best understand your individual needs and assist you with your package.
My Way has basic levels of home care packages, and this is the best way to develop a package and services that suit you.
Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) – Entry-level support. Help around the home for those who only need assistance with one or a couple of tasks.
Flexible Care – Flexible care acknowledges that the needs of aged care consumers (consumers) may require a different care approach than those provided through mainstream residential and home services.
Privately Funded Home Care – Extra support for those who may not yet qualify for Government funding or who may have extra care requirements.
You get more out of life when you receive support from someone you connect with.
Our aged care services are all about finding the best Personal Support Worker for you.
This is more than just finding someone with a particular skill set.
We work hard to match you with someone with a similar background, personality, and values.
Once you’ve found your perfect match, we like to keep it that way.
This helps us create strong bonds and means you and your family have a familiar face they can turn to for support.
