Costs & Eligibility

Our home aged care services are available to seniors over the age of 65, (or over 50 years for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders).

The cost of your services will be determined by your eligibility for the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) or a Home Care Package (HCP). Depending on your circumstances you may not need to pay anything at all. In some cases, you will be asked to pay a co-payment of $15 per hour. 

If you’re not eligible for CHSP or a home care package, you can still access allied health services through Medicare, the Department of Veterans' Affairs, and privately funded services; where you meet the full cost of care yourself.

Our approach to home care

Ozcare’s home care services are designed to help you keep living in your home for longer. With a personalised care plan created together with you and your family, we help you to become more independent with the aim of reducing your need for ongoing services, or the need to access higher care services such as complex nursing.

With 20 years’ experience in aged care, our team of carers, nurses, occupational therapists and other allied health professionals offer a complete suite of services in the comfort of your own home.
