More Home Care Packages

In December the Commonwealth Government announced the release of 10,000 high level home care packages as part of the Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook (MYEFO)  budget review.

The 10,000 new high-level home care packages deliver important services at home, such as complex clinical care from a range of providers, nursing and mobility care, nutrition, hydration and meal preparation and transport support.

The packages will be available from early 2019 and split across 5,000 level 3 and 5,000 level 4 packages providing up to $50,000 per person in services each year.

A number of other initiatives were also announced, including increases to the rural and remote and homeless supplements for residential aged care providers.  More information www.health.gov.au.
