Veterans Home Care Program

Funded through the Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA), the program's services are based on your assessed needs and may include things like help with the housework, personal care or garden maintenance.

Low level support to help keep you independent

Support to stay at home

We'll give you a helping hand with everyday things, so you can continue living independently at home.

Domestic Assistance

Stay on top of the cooking, cleaning, laundry and general housework with our personalised support.

Personal care

From showering to getting dressed, we provide gentle assistance to help you maintain your health, hygiene and dignity.


We can step in to help if your loved one or primary carer needs to take a break from their caring duties.

Safety-related home and garden maintenance 

We'll help with those jobs around the house and garden, so you can live safely at home and minimise the risk of falls.

Affordable care

Veterans' Home Care is subsidised by the government, making it an affordable way for eligible people to receive support.

How does Veterans’ Home Care work?

If you have a Veteran Gold Card or a Veteran White Card, you are eligible to be assessed for Veterans’ Home Care. To do this, you can call the Department of Veterans’ Affairs on 1300 550 450 and answer a questionnaire over the phone (you will be guided through the process).

Once you have been approved for Veterans’ Home Care, the Department of Veterans’ Affairs will give your service provider – such as LiveBetter – a support plan based on your needs. This support plan will state what services you are eligible for, and the number of service hours you are able to receive.

How much does Veterans’ Home Care cost?

If you qualify for Veterans’ Home Care, you will be asked to contribute a co-payment towards the cost of your services (the exception is respite care service, which has no co-payment).

If you can’t afford co-payments, you can apply for a waiver of your co-payment through the Department of Veterans’ Affairs. Please get in touch if you need assistance; we’re happy to help.
