Home Care Packages

Many of mecwacare’s in-home services are available through Home Care Packages, part of the Federal Government’s Living Longer Living Better aged-care reforms. The aims of these packages are to help both older people and people with disabilities to keep living at home, and to introduce more choice and flexibility for those receiving care at home.

Packages range through four levels, from basic care to high care. You can make choices about the type and delivery of your services, as well as which provider helps you and when. At mecwacare we work to integrate each health and wellbeing service to provide you with quality care that is tailored to meet your needs yet has the flexibility to vary as your needs change.

Please click the links below for more information on the differences between the package levels.
