The Australian Government funds home care through the Home Care Packages Program. It provides aged care services to people in their own home.
We collect financial details of care recipients to complete a Home Care Package means assessment. We work out how much a care recipient pays for their care services.
We calculate the amount of income-tested care fee you can ask care recipients to pay.
The Aged Care Fee Estimator on the My Aged Care website can help care recipients estimate the fees and charges they need to pay for aged care.
