Home care packages
The Government provides financial assistance to help those living at home remain in the community. This is done in the form of a ‘package.’ Arcare is an accredited home care package provider and holds level 1 & 2 and level 3 & 4 home care packages on behalf of the Government.
If you live in Metropolitan Melbourne, Brisbane, the Gold Coast or the Sunshine Coast, you can continue living in the place you love with an Arcare Home Care Package. We have level 1 & 2 and level 3 & 4 package vacancies in these areas.
Each and every year we have been providing our services in the community we have met 18 out of 18 of the Government’s quality standards.
The services we provide our home care package clients are driven by their lifestyle and care needs. As such, they will vary according to the individual’s wishes. Typical services provided might look like:
– Transport to social engagements and medical appointments
– Companionship and social support
– Home duties such as meal preparation and cleaning
– Showering, bathing and grooming
– Nursing services
– In-home respite
– And other support services as directed by the package recipient, GP or Care Consultant
As home care packages are funded by the Government, eligibility is determined by the Government’s Aged Care Assessment Team (Service). Visit www.myagedcare.gov.au to check your eligibility.
Our Care Consultants
Care Consultants are client advocates who serve as a liaison between the package recipient, their families, their doctor and allied health professionals. They work alongside our dedicated team of carers and care co-ordinators and their main role is to support clients and enable them to achieve their individual health and life goals. Care Consultants help administer the funding with the client to ensure it meets their needs and wishes.
