What is a Home Care Package?

A government-funded, coordinated package of services (e.g. meal preparation, cleaning, gardening), tailored to meet the care needs of older people who wish to remain living at home. Based in Ballan, we offer all four levels of Home Care Packages, and can tailor a care plan that enables you to live independently at home, and live the life you want.

Home Care Packages are delivered on a Consumer Directed Care (CDC) basis. This means you (and your carer) have more choice and control over what services are delivered and where and when they are delivered.

Getting the right support

Getting the right support is very important and makes all the difference in helping you to live at home independently and safely for many years to come. As a smaller provider of Home Care Packages, we understand how important it is for older people to be in control of the decisions about their care. This is why our services are flexible and personally tailored to suit your needs, your lifestyle and what you value most.
