Home Care Packages (HCP) are one of the ways that older Australians can access affordable care services to get some help at home. Home Care Services assist people to live independently in their own home. Frail older people, younger people with a disability in NSW and their carers who are having difficulty managing in their own homes are eligible for help from the Home Care Service. Services include domestic assistance, personal care and respite care. A referral is necessary to access this service, not necessarily from a doctor – a family member can refer or you may refer yourself and you will be assessed for eligibility.
