A Home Care Package is an Australian Government funding subsidy that allows individuals to purchase services to enable them to live independently in their own home.

To receive a Home Care Package, you will likely need a free assessment by an Aged Care Assessment Team (NSW), or Aged Care Assessment Services (Victoria).

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

  • an older person who needs coordinated services to help you to stay in your home,
  • a younger person with a disability in unique circumstances where your care needs are not met through other specialist services.

Once a Home Care Package has been allocated to you, you will receive a letter of notification detailing your package ‘Reference Number’ and ‘Level’ (value).

There are four Home Care Package levels:

  • Level 1 – basic care needs
  • Level 2 – low-level care needs
  • Level 3 – intermediate care needs
  • Level 4 – high-level care needs.

Your Reference Number will enable you to access services after it has been activated by an approved provider, such as Community Interlink.

Castlemaine Hot Rod Centre

In 2004 an idea was hatched that was to become the Castlemaine Hot Rod Centre. The fruits of our labour are now starting to reveal themselves and the excitement is building. Read more about our story so far…

We have been extremely lucky to be able to have sourced many professional business people and organizations who have been able to advise us on which direction our project would most benefit.

We are sure that this list will grow in the near future as the realization of our project is acknowledged.

We also acknowledge that some of these companies and organizations waived their initial fees to enable us gain more information and direction without the pressure of finances.
