Home Care Packages are home help & home care services that are funded (either in part or in full) by the Australian Government.
Level 4 Home Care Packages (HCP Level 4 or HCP4) are intended to support people who have high level care needs. If you or a loved one has high level or complex care needs, you may be eligible to receive assistance with:
Recipients of a Level 4 Home Care Package would also be eligible to enter residential aged care, but would prefer to remain living in the comfort of their own home.
Level 4 Home Care Packages are suitable for people with complex care needs.
To access a Level 4 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 4 package would be suitable for your in-home care needs.
All Level 4 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. Click here to find out more about Consumer Directed Care.
Home Care Packages can only be delivered by approved services providers on behalf of the Government.
