Home Care

As you grow older, your needs may change. But that doesn’t necessarily mean you need to leave your home. Whether you live in one of our retirement villages or your own home in the wider community, we can provide support to help you live the life you want.

Our Home Care services can assist with a wide range of tasks. The most common of these include help getting dressed, bathing, meal preparation, cleaning and laundry.

Gardening and basic home maintenance, transport, nursing and allied health and therapy services are also very popular. However, if something you need assistance with isn’t listed below, don’t worry, we’re sure we’ll be able to find a suitable solution.

Remember, asking for help doesn’t mean losing your independence; it’s quite the opposite. Getting a little help with daily activities means you can stay independent in your own home for longer.

If you would like Lutheran Homes Group to provide care and support services in your home, or have any questions, please call our Home Care team on 1300 320 505 or send an enquiry online.

Cost and Funding

Many Australians arrange care and support services in their home help through a Government-funded Home Care Package. Although services can also be paid for privately.

Home Care Package funding

You may be eligible for a Government-funded Home Care Package (HCP) through My Aged Care.

There are four levels of packages available, ranging from basic support to high care needs. Each level receives a different amount of funding from the Government. The level of package is assigned based on your home care needs after an assessment by the My Aged Care team.

Once approved for an HCP, you can choose Lutheran Homes Group as the provider of your HCP services. If you are currently receiving services from another provider, you can choose to move your existing HCP to us.

We will provide you with a monthly statement listing fees paid and services received.

Eligibility for a HCP is means-tested, so you are expected to contribute to the cost of your Home Support Services if you can afford it.

Find out more about applying for a Home Care Package on the My Aged Care website.
