Home Care Packages (HCP) aim to assist older Australians to live in their own homes as independently as they can, for as long as possible. Of course, this is as per the client’s preferences and if they so choose to, as opposed to living in a residential care facility. HCPs are designed for clients whose care needs are more complex and go beyond the scope of the Commonwealth Home Support Programme. There are four levels of HCPs for different care needs.
