Home Care Package Funding

As a Home Care Package recipient, you naturally want your funding to go as far as possible. You can elect to self-manage your Home Care Package, or sign up for support with Prestige. Prestige Inhome Care  helps you get greater value, more choice and better control out of your package. 

How Does Home Care Package Funding Work?

There are four levels of funding for Home Care Packages which correspond to the amount of care you need. You should also be aware of the different fees which may apply to your package.

We can help you understand what’s involved with funding if you have any questions.

What’s the Cost?

How much will the government provide me for my care?

Depending on the assessed need for the individual, the levels of Government funding available are as follows:

Level 1

Funding Level

$ 8,927 per year
  • Basic level needs

Level 2

Funding Level

$ 15,705 per year
  • Low-level care needs

Level 3

Funding Level

$ 34,174 per year
  • Intermediate care needs

Level 4

Funding Level

$ 51,808 per year
  • Higher-level care needs

Rates above are accurate at July 2020.

The Aged Care Assessment Team determines your eligibility for a home Care Package.

Government funding is a subsidy which has rules about how it can be spent and how much you can spend.

Once you’ve established your Home Care Package funding, and choose Prestige Inhome Care, you’ll be happy to discover that our admin fee is one of the lowest in the industry because we believe you should be able to spend your Government funding on your actual services, not on service provider fees.

What If I Already Have A Home Care Package?

When you receive a Home Care Package, you have the right to change your care provider at any point, if you think an alternate care provider will better suit your needs. Our Care Specialist team can run a cost comparison for you, free of charge, to check if you are paying too much in fees with your current provider
