Are you on the National Waiting List for a Home Care Package? GREAT NEWS!

11,000 New Home Care Packages are scheduled for release starting this month. If successful in this round you should receive a letter stating that you have been assigned a package. This letter will include a unique referral code which can be used to access care.

For most consumers, the package will allow them to access care for the first time, for others it will be an upgrade on the level of care they are currently receiving.

In line with the new reforms new package recipients will now have to select their own Approved Provider to manage their Home Care Package. People who already have a Home Care Package can now change Providers if they are not happy with who currently manages their package.

Not all Providers are the same and it pays to shop around to find a Provider that is best suited to your needs. Better Living Homecare are Government Approved Package Provider who have been delivering care to people in their own homes for the past 30 years.

We charge a fair and reasonable fee which enables you to receive maximum benefit from your Home Care Package. You will not be required to pay 17.5% of the pension (known as a Daily Fee). Our maximum Total Fee is 26% with no hidden charges. Better Living Homecare do not charge an exit fee.

Better Living have understanding and experienced Care Managers to assist you to understand your funding and to ensure that you get maximum benefit from your Home Care Package. We work with you to develop a care plan which outlines which services you require to assist you to live independently in your home. Care Managers will then assist in sourcing appropriate services. At this point you can also have a say in who provides these services. If you have previous Carers that you would like to use, you can. If you know a good gardener that you would like to cut your lawn – your package will pay for them.

Best of all it is time to enjoy the services and care you receive to help you live independently in your own home and community.If you wish to discuss Home Care Package Care Plans or any other aspect of a Home Care Package Better Living Homecare can be contacted on 1300 30 73 44.
