Home Care Package Fee Estimator

Fees and charges

Although Home Care Packages are subsidised by the Australian Government, depending on your financial capacity, you may be required to contribute towards the cost of your care. Your financial capacity will be assessed by Centrelink who may request that you contribute in one of the following ways:

  • A basic fee of up to 17.5% of the single basic Age Pension
  • An income-tested care fee, if your income is over a certain amount.

* An approved provider of aged care is an organisation that has been approved to provide residential care, home care or flexible care under the Aged Care Act 1997 (the Act). To receive Australian Government aged care subsidies, an organisation must be an approved provider.

Call us and speak to Julia to discuss fees and request an information pack. 

Work out the costs

The Australian Government provides a subsidy towards your care through the Home Care Packages Program. If your personal circumstances allow, it is expected you will make a financial contribution towards the cost of your care and services.

My Aged Care can give you an estimate of your likely fees. To get an estimate you can:

use the Fee Estimator on the website at www.myagedcare.gov.au/fee-estimator/home-care;   or call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422

Before you can commence receiving a home care package, it is recommended that you arrange for a formal income assessment to be completed by the Department of Human Services (DHS). If you choose not to complete this form, you can be asked to pay the maximum income- tested care fee.

Testimonials from our valued clients.

My Care Worker, Karin, is so efficient, capable and caring. She has proved to be intelligent, reliable, conscientious and her integrity is undoubted. She has been a huge factor in my living in my own home with all my health problems.
Her assistance in so many ways has contributed greatly to me achieving this and hopefully will continue for some time to come. I am very lucky to have the assistance of such a capable and understanding Care Worker from Oxley Home Care.

Testimonials from our valued clients.

I have been fortunate and blessed. My mother has been looked after with such professionalism, kindness and concern that is usually offered by a daughter or son. The Case Managers have never said no to my needs or wishes.

Hi Gillian, I just wanted to let you know that sadly, I will be finishing up at CCNB on Friday. It has been a pleasure working with you over the last 9ish years, Oxley have always been so responsive and easy to work with, yourself in particular, and CCNB really value the relationship we have with you. I hope there are many more years of a successful partnership to come.
