Home Care Package
Home care packages are designed to help people, usually elderly people, who need some support to continue living independently at home.
There are some other details you need to be aware of, including funding levels, availability, and the contributions which may apply.
The NDIS can provide funding for people with any type of disability, including intellectual, physical, and mental health conditions.
The amount of funding you receive and the types of services you can get will depend on your circumstances.
