Depending on your needs and circumstances, there are several ways to access home care services. If you meet the eligibility criteria, government funding may be available through Home Care Packages or the Commonwealth Home Support Program. Alternatively, you can pay privately for any of our services at any time.
The two types of Government subsidised care are:
- Home Care Packages (HCP) for older people requiring a comprehensive range of services.
- Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) for older people requiring entry level care.
The steps below may help as a guide to accessing government-subsidised services. If you have questions about the process, Bene can provide you with step-by-step assistance. Simply call 08 8131 2000.
You can also privately fund your care
This fee-for-service option means less paperwork, less waiting, and you can work directly with Bene to design a level of service that’s tailored for you. You can also access privately funded care while you’re waiting for a government-subsidised care service to be approved or if you already receive a government-subsidised care service but would like additional services.
