The process for new clients

We can help you get started with a government home care subsidy. Here’s the process for new clients getting set up with government funding:

We can guide you through the process of getting a Home Care Package. We can answer any questions you have about how it works.

We will also talk to you about your care requirements and lifestyle goals so we can have better idea about the care you need. Get in touch with us to get started.

Call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 and tell them you would like to register for a Home Care Package. They will organise an assessment for you to determine which funding level you are eligible for.

We can refer you for an assessment if you prefer and help you understand the process along the way.

Once you have been approved and allocated a Home Care Package, sign up with Absolute Care & Health as your Care Provider.

One of our Care Manager will carry out a care assessment and personal discovery and care planning session with you.

This is to fully understand your goals and lifestyle aspirations. We get to know your preferences so we can tailor our care to you, including matching you with the right caregiver for you.

We develop a written Care Plan for you. This is based on your goals and outlines the services we will provide so it’s clear for everyone involved.

The Care Plan doesn’t lock you in for any set period of time and you can leave whenever you want. With absolutely no exit fees.

Your Care Plan is fully flexible and we can amend it at any time depending on your needs. We will always review it with you regularly.
