FAQs About Home Care Services

In Australia, the funding for home care services is primarily provided by the Australian Government through the Aged Care system. The cost of home care is shared between the government and the individual receiving care. Government subsidies are available through programs like Home Care Packages and the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP). The level of government subsidy and individual contribution is based on factors such as income, assets, and the specific program accessed. Financial assessments are conducted to determine individual contributions, ensuring that home care services remain affordable and accessible. Contact us today to learn more about funding options and how we can assist you with home care services.

A home care subsidy in Australia refers to the financial assistance provided by the Australian Government to support individuals in accessing and receiving home care services. It includes programs such as Home Care Packages and the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP).

These subsidies help individuals maintain independence by subsidising the cost of care based on assessed needs. Individuals may be required to contribute to the remaining cost, depending on their income and assets. The subsidies aim to make home care services more affordable and accessible, providing essential support for individuals to receive care in the comfort of their own homes. 

The Home Care Packages in Australia are divided into four levels, each representing a different level of care and support based on the individual’s assessed needs. The four levels of Home Care Packages are as follows:

  • Level 1: This is the entry-level package designed to support individuals with basic care needs. It provides a small amount of funding to access a range of basic care services.
  • Level 2: This package provides a higher level of care and support for individuals with low-level care needs. It offers a moderate amount of funding to access a broader range of services compared to Level 1.
  • Level 3: This package is designed for individuals with intermediate care needs. It provides a higher level of funding to access more comprehensive care and support services.
  • Level 4: This is the highest level of Home Care Package, intended for individuals with high-level care needs. It offers a significant amount of funding to access a wide range of services, including complex care requirements.


The allocation of Home Care Package levels is determined through a comprehensive assessment. The assessment considers the individual’s care needs, health conditions, and support requirements to determine the appropriate level of funding and care services.
