If you’re a senior Italian wanting to continue living independently in your own home but require assistance to do so, a Home Care Package might be the answer you’re looking for. A Home Care Package can provide you with the services you want to best meet your individual needs!
Levels of Packages
There are four levels of Home Care Packages available to consumers. To receive a Home Care Package you will require an assessment conducted by a regional Aged Care Assessment Service. This determines your eligibility to receive a particular level of package. The four levels of packages are:
Level 1 – Basic Care Needs
Level 2- low-level care needs
Level 3 – intermediate care needs
Level 4 – High-level care needs
The types of service that can be provided through a Home Care Package are varied and may include any of the following:
Co.As.It. provides a culturally specific service which is geared towards addressing the individual needs of members of the Italian-Australian community. Our focus is on Italian-specific tradition, culture, needs and ways of doing things. The direction and use of the package is guided by each individual consumer and their primary carers in a way that respects their wishes and needs. All care-coordinators have knowledge of Italian language and dialects in order to best facilitate communication and understanding between us the provider and you the consumer.
We are always open to suggestions and ideas from consumers to how best we can maximise our services. We welcome feedback in order to help us improve as an organisation.
A personalized care plan will be developed in partnership with you, or your representative and the Care Coordinator. Consumer choice and flexibility are key features of a Home Care Package. You decide what services are needed to achieve your care plan goals.
Requests for a Home Care Package approval must be made through “My Aged Care”.
