Home Care Packages
How Can We Help?
Home Care packages are a flexible suite of services tailored to meet your individual needs.
When setting up a package with Albany Community Care Centre, a Home Care Coordinator will help you to set health and lifestyle goals and to choose the services you need to achieve them.
Packages are offered at a fixed price and may include a range of services provided by trained carers in your home or in our friendly, purpose built centre on Hardie Rd. Home Care packages are part of Consumer Directed Care, and are regularly reviewed with clients and carers to allow services to be adjusted as needed.
How Much Will It Cost?
The maximum amount charged for a Home Care package is 17.5% of the Aged Pension or 50% of your total income above the maximum pension rate. Once this rate has been set, you can relax, knowing that your packaged care will not exceed a pre-arranged, regular amount.
If you would like to access services which are extra to the agreement, such as transport or meals at our day centre, the costs will be made clear and will appear separately on your monthly bill.
At Albany Community Care, no client is disadvantaged due to their inability to contribute a fee for their package of care.
