Home Care Services are provided by trained Home Care Workers to help keep you safe, independent and living at home for as long as possible. We provide flexible assistance, giving you the freedom to choose the best options for you or your loved one.
Funding options include:
Home Care Packages
Commonwealth Home Support Programme
Veterans’ Home Care
Home Care Services can assist with things like cleaning & washing, shopping & meal preparation, gardening, transport, allied health services, home modifications, equipment purchase and more.
A Home Care Package is a government subsidised package of services designed to meet your needs to help keep you safe, independent and living at home for as long as possible. Four package levels (basic to high level) are available Australia-wide.
What are the benefits of a Home Care Package?
A Home Care Package can help you retain your independence where you feel comfortable and safe – at home. A HCP can provide relief, help avoid inactivity and isolation and get things done that aren’t safe for you to do anymore. Importantly, it can slow down the need for even greater support, like a Retirement Home.
What types of services are included in a Home Care Package?
Depending on your needs, a range of supports can be provided as part of a Home Care Package, including cleaning & washing, meal preparation, gardening, telehealth, therapies & allied health, personal care, shopping, transport, home modifications and more. We work hard to maximise the value of your package.
Who pays for a Home Care Package?
Home Care Package funding is a subsidy from the Australian government. You can be asked to contribute a basic daily fee and an income-tested fee, depending on your personal circumstances. LiveBetter provides a budget and monthly statement.

Commonwealth Home Support Programme
What is the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP)?
Funded by the Australian government, the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) provides a range of entry-level aged care services to assist older people to keep living independently at home and in their community. If you are generally able to manage but need some help with daily tasks to continue living at home, CHSP may be right for you. These services are also suitable for people who have had a setback and need short term support.
Who can access the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP)?
People aged over 65 (50 years and over for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people).
What types of services does the CHSP include?
Depending on your needs, you may be eligible to receive domestic assistance (e.g. cleaning, vacuuming, laundry), personal care (e.g. showering, grooming), respite, home modifications and more.
How do I access Commonwealth Home Support Programme services?
You need to have approval from ‘My Aged Care’ before receiving services. Call your local Aged Care Consultant today on 1800 580 580 and we can guide you through the ‘My Aged Care’ assessment process.
