How can I estimate my fees for a Home Care Package?

It is difficult to give a “one size fits all” answer when it comes to estimating home care fees and services, as it can depend on an individual’s circumstances, the level of care required and financial circumstances.

For Australian seniors who are eligible for a home care package, there are many resources available and the first step is to visit the Federal Government’s My Aged Care website, or to contact them on 1800 200 422.

The website offers a wealth of information including an online home care assessment calculator, designed to give an estimate on the benefits, entitlements and the level of fees which might be charged.

They will be able to provide home care assistance information on:

  • the different types of aged care services
  • eligibility for services
  • your aged care needs and assistance in finding local services to meet your needs – you are able to select your own service provider
  • the cost of your aged care services, including fee estimators

They may also organise for a home care assessment, which will involve a local assessor coming to an individual’s home and builds on the information which has already been provided.

Seniors are then able to do their own research in selecting a home care provider which best suits their needs and circumstances.
