Federal Government Subsidised Home Care Funding options are determined on an individual basis following an Aged Care Assessment. Home Care Packages are available in four care levels, determined by Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). The levels come with a set level of annual funding, which can be allocated to provide the support services needed for Home Care Package Service Fees.
