Packages subsidised by the Australian Government
A Home Care Package (HCP) provides services to help you remain living at home for as long as possible. Packages offer choice and flexibility for our clients and are tailored to meet individual care requirements.
Following assessment which is initiated after contact with the government My Aged Care centralised intake service, you may be eligible to receive a Home Care Package.
A Home Care Package is a co-ordinated service delivery model. NHN is an Approved Provider of home care services and is able to Administer and Co-ordinate your Home Care Package. All staff are professional, trained and responsive.
HCPs are subsidised by the Australian Government, and there are four levels of HCPs available depending on the amount of support required. The team at Nandebri Home Nursing work closely with you to understand your exact needs and help organise your care package.
If you are 65 years or older, or an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person over 50 years of age, you may be eligible for a Home Care Package.
To receive a Home Care Package you will need to be assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). The Nandebri Home Nursing team can assist you with this process.
The ACAT helps determine what kind of care will best meet your needs, when you are no longer able to manage on your own. A member of the team which may include a doctor, nurse, social worker, and/or other health professional will meet with you to assess your care needs and how well you are managing at home.
Nandebri Home Nursing offer a range of services that can be provided as part of a Home Care Package. These include:
