Recipients of a Level 2 Home Care Package may also be eligible to enter residential aged care, but would prefer to remain living at home.
To access a Level 2 Home Care Package, you or your loved one will need to undergo an assessment by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) - also known as an Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS) in Victoria. This assessment will determine whether you are eligible to receive a Home Care Package and if a Level 2 package would be suitable for your in-home care needs.
All Level 2 Home Care Packages are now offered under the new Consumer Directed Care (CDC) Model which means you have more control over how your Home Care Package funds are spent.
Home Care Packages can only be delivered by approved services providers on behalf of the Government.
