^These hours are an estimate based on Government Funding, paying for Monday to Friday Caregiver services during the day. If you want night or weekend care, Registered Nurse or Allied Health services, mileage, equipment hire and nursing resources paid by your Home Care Package
it will use part of your budget, reducing the hours of care we can provide, paid for by your Government Funded Home Care Package

with Daughterly Care Community Services
we give you a proposed budget and estimated amount that can be spent on care and services, including the hours of care your package can afford.
*If you are a full pensioner because we don’t charge the Basic Daily Care Fee, then having a Home Care Package managed by Daughterly Care does NOT cost you a cent of your own money.
If you are a part-pensioner or self-funded, we also don’t charge you the Basic Daily Care Fee, however no Approved Provider can waive your Income Tested Care Fee, which will be advised by Services Australia.
What does Daughterly Care Community Services Charge for Management and Case Management of your in Home Care Package?
Daughterly Care’s cost for the extra administration, accounting, auditing, monthly reporting to clients, care plan documentation, care plan reviews and case management required by the Government’s Home Care Package Program is paid by the Home Care Package Management Fee & Care Management Fee as in table below:
This fee is deducted from your Government Funded Home Care Package and so has already been taken it into consideration in the hours above. You don’t pay this fee from your own pocket.
Major saving for private care clients: If you need to top up your in Home Care Package with your own private money for additional in home care and support services over what the Government funds, Daughterly Care Community Services does NOT charge any Home Care Package fee on any privately paid, voluntary or top up care fees that you add to your Home Care Package from your private care money. You just pay our private care fees.
This is a major benefit for our clients whose care needs exceeds the Government Funding as our audits of thousands of Home Care Package Monthly Statements found that all the Approved Providers we audited charged the Home Care Package Fees on the private care and voluntary top up fees when the client had a Home Care Package.
