What does in Home Care cost?
What in home care costs depends on how you are paying for your in home support and care, what type of services and support you are receiving as well as when you receive your services. There are three ways to pay for your Home Care costs:
- privately from your own personal money, in which case we have no waiting list and no Aged Care Assessment is needed. This is commonly known as private care; or
- from your Government Subsidised Home Care Package which pays for our services. (You may need to contribute to your Home Care Package as per the Government rules); or
- from a combination of your Government Subsidised Home Care Package.
With our private in-home care, you just pay our clinical or home nursing care fees which are based on the time we spend assisting supporting and caring for you.
- No Aged Care Assessment is needed to use our private care services
- You don’t have to ring My Aged Care first
- No waiting list to start services
- No set up fees
- No exit fees
Please tell us at the beginning of our phone conversation or email message that you will be paying privately so that our conversation with you will be a lot simpler and quicker.
