Home Care Packages
Kingston City Council is committed to supporting you to stay living in your own home for as long as you wish.
For people aged over 65, we provide the full range of home support services from basic (entry level) home support services, right through to comprehensive support with a Home Care Package. It's not just support in the home either. We also have a lively social calendar for you to enjoy and a range of transport options to help you get out and about and to and from appointments. Visit our dedicated website accesscare.org.au for more information.
Home Care Packages
If you are aged over 65, a Home Care Package can provide you funding from the government to support you to remain living comfortably in your own home.
You are in control of how you would like your Home Care Package money spent and what your priorities are. Here are just some examples of services you may like to use with your funds:
- Personal care
- Housework and laundry
- Home maintenance and modifications
- Taxis and carer transport
- Shopping assistance and meals
- Social activities
- Exercise and wellness
- Nursing, physiotherapy, podiatry, occupational therapy and massage
Through AccessCare, City of Kingston you will also receive an Aged Care Adviser who will support you and provide unlimited advice. Your adviser will guide and support you to make the best use of your package funds to support the lifestyle you wish. Our advisers are tertiary qualified and have a great deal of experience in navigating the sometimes complex health and aged care system. They will be your advocate, listening and supporting you to stay active and make the most of your life.
