What are the Home Care Package levels?
There are four levels of Home Care Package for different care and support needs:
- Level 1 for basic care needs
- Level 2 for low-level care needs
- Level 3 for intermediate care needs
- Level 4 for high-level care needs.
Each level receives a different amount of government funding. The higher the level, the more funding the government pays on your behalf, allowing you to buy more services. A Level 4 package allows you to buy the most services.
Once you’ve had an Aged Care Assessment, you will be told which level applies for you.
