Uniting

Costs

The cost will vary depending on how much care you need.

There are 4 levels of care within the Home Care Packages Program, based on how much care and support is required. Everyone who applies is assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) to find out what level of care they are eligible for.

Each package level has a different amount of funding which the government pays to a Home Care Service Provider, such as Uniting. We’ll work with you to decide how your funding is spent to make sure you have the care and services you need.

The more care and support you need, the higher the level of care and services you will require, so the more funding you’ll receive from the government.

Depending on your income, you may need to make a contribution to the cost of your package and you can find out more about this on the Australian Government My Aged Care website.
