A Home Care Package can offer clients a chance to continue living independently in their own home, rather than entering a nursing home prematurely.
It is about providing choice and flexibility for each client and each care plan is tailored to an individual’s needs.
Underpinning each care plan are the principles of wellness and reablement.
These are crucial in facilitating your ongoing independence in your own home.
To qualify for a Home Care Package you must be assessed by your local Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS) and require a higher level of support than what is offered through the Commonwealth Home Support Program.
Our Access and Support consultant can refer you. Alternatively, a doctor or nurse may refer you to ACAS for an assessment or you can visit your own local ACAS. (ACAS assessments are free of charge). You may also contact My Aged Care directly on 1800 200 422.
The ACAS assessor will identify the right level of care you might require. You will then be advised whether you are approved for a Home Care Package or not. If approved, you will be placed on the National Priority Queue.
You will be contacted by My Aged Care once a package becomes available and is assigned to you.
Fronditha Care is an approved Home Care Package provider and can be chosen by you to provide community services – especially for CALD clients.
Simply advise your assessor or My Aged Care of your request.
Note: This is not an exhaustive list as your care plan will be individually tailored to meet your specific care needs.
Fronditha Care charges Home Care Package recipients an Administration and Core Advisory fee. The percentage is determined by the level of coordination you chose to take control of and how much you delegate to Fronditha Care.
Volunteers are important to the happiness and wellbeing of Fronditha Care’s residents and clients. They become familiar faces with regular visits and break up the day for the elderly.
