Funding

Depending on your personal circumstances, there are a range of options available to fund your support services. There are a few factors in understanding which of the following funding options will apply to you:

  • Government funded
  • Self funded
  • A combination of both

There are a range of other government funding options that you may be eligible for. We can help you navigate through the process of understanding what financial support is available to you and how you can apply to access it.

The Home Care Package program provides government funded home care across four levels of support to help you keep your independence and lifestyle, and living in your own home for longer.  

If you are eligible for this funding, you can use it to access a range of services in the home and community, so you can live a valued and included life.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE ?

You may be eligible for a Home Care Package if you are:

  • Aged 65 years or older
  • Aged 50 years or older and identify as an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person

 

There are four levels of Home Care Packages to help meet different needs and your personal circumstance. During your aged care assessment, your assessor will discuss your current care needs and determine the best level to meet them.

Level 1

Basic assistance, designed to give you a little extra support to help stay independent. This might include one or two visits a week from a care worker. Care can include some help with cleaning and tidying around the house, supporting you with your personal health, such as grooming and dressing, or getting some help with meals, shopping and transport.

Level 2

Similar to basic assistance, a low level of care, designed to give you a little extra support to help stay independent. This might include three or four visits a week from a care worker. Care can include some help with cleaning and tidying around the house, supporting you with your personal health, such as grooming and dressing, or getting some help with meals, shopping and transport.

Level 3

Services for people  who need more support to stay living at home. This might include visits from a care worker or a nurse most days of the week. Beyond a little help in the home, you can also access support from our trained medical staff, including podiatry services, massage and virtual nurse health monitoring.

Level 4

High level care is suitable if you have complex nursing needs. This includes assistance with domestic, medical, or nursing support. This might include visits every day from a care worker or a nurse.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme is a new way of providing disability support and takes a lifetime approach, investing in people with disability early to improve their outcomes later in life. The NDIS is all about listening and learning about your needs, so you can be connected to the appropriate support services and have better access to the community you live in.

What support will be funded under NDIS ?

The prices for annecto’s NDIS supports are in accordance with the latest NDIS Price Guide issued by the NDIA. Changes to prices are updated by NDIA to respond to market trends and changes in costs, and are generally identified through an Annual Price Review. All prices for annecto’s supports are adjusted accordingly whenever a new NDIS Price Guide is issued. This helps ensure value for money for participants, and that the disability services market remains sustainable. The latest NDIA Price Guide can be found on the NDIS website.
