Our Home Care Package services
Can we help with your loved one’s Home Care Package?
South Eastern Community Connect is an approved home care service provider, regulated by the Australian government.
Our aim is to help seniors continue living safely and independently at home for as long as they want to – and are able to – with our support.
The Home Care Package has been rolled out by the Australian government to help seniors access care.
What do we offer?
When your parent or loved one partners with South Eastern Community Connect, they will be given a personalised care service especially designed for them.
Our individual consultation service can help them understand the different levels of home care packages, and assist them to get the most value out of their package.
As a provider of choice, our main concern is their needs and health.
Users of the package are given a ‘care budget’, and they determine the level of involvement they’d like in managing their own package.
There are four levels of home care support available, depending on what’s been assigned by the government.
Here are the four levels of home care support currently available:
Level 1: For people with basic care needs
Level 2: For people with low-level care needs
Level 3: For people with intermediate care needs
Level 4: For people with high-level care needs.
