What services are included in a Home Care Package?

Home Care Packages are customized to meet the needs of each client. You are assessed at one of four levels, and your level corresponds to the amount of money you can spend on care from a registered provider:

Package level Level of care needs

Home Care Package LEVEL 1

Basic Care needs – approximately $9,026 a year

Home Care Package LEVEL 2

Low Care needs – approximately $15,877 a year

Home Care Package LEVEL 3

Intermediate Care needs – approximately $34,550 a year

Home Care Package LEVEL 4

High Care needs – approximately $52,377 a year

You can spend that money on whichever services you like. Nursing assistance, domestic assistance, social support, home adaptations / mobility aids, daily vital activities, or assistive technology to make getting around your house safer and easier are all examples of support.
