Consumer Directed Care
As part of the Living Longer, Living Better Aged Care Reforms, all Homecare Packages are to be delivered using Consumer Directed Care. This enables you to have greater control and choice over your homecare assistance requirements. You decide in partnership with your provider the types of services and who you want to provide those services. You are entitled to equality, transparency and accountability.
Homecare Package Fees are varied depending on your circumstances.
