Home Care Fees

Our mission is to provide quality home care at reasonable fees. 

There are four levels of home care available to cater for low and high level care needs. After completing an ACAT assessment you will most likely be eligible for one of these home care packages. We will help you understand how much the government subsidises and what your home care fees will be.

After your package is approved and you have selected your home care provider, we will manage your package on your behalf and provide complete transparency on all home care fees and charges.

How much does a home care package cost?

There are four levels of home care depending on whether you have high or low care needs, Level 1 is the lowest care up to Level 4 which is the highest care, each receives a government subsidy as listed below:

  • Home Care Level 1 -  2-3 hours per week. Approx. $8000 per annum.
  • Home Care Level 2 - 3-5 hours per week. Approx. $15,000 per annum.
  • Home Care Level 3 - 6-9 hours per week. Approx. $30,000 per annum.
  • Home Care Level 4 - 10-14 hours per week. Approx. $50,000 per annum.

Home care fees to be aware of:
