We understand that continuing to live at home will help you to maintain independence, choice and quality of life. Our experienced team can explain how Home Care Services can be funded and guide you through the process of getting started.
At BSL, we work with people to identify and develop their strengths. Care is more than just what a person needs. It is about what we can do to support a person to maintain or regain fulfilment, maximise safety and foster independence. Our case managers work closely with clients to identify their care needs and meet those care needs flexibly as they change.
Choose services to suit your lifestyle
We offer a broad range of services based on your needs, priorities and lifestyle.
How it works
If you’re new to Aged Care services, it can be hard to know where to start. Our friendly team is here to:
- Explain your options
- Assist with applying for government funding or answer any questions you might have about Home Care Packages or other forms of government funding
- Take you through our fees and hourly rates so that you can understand how we compare.
Options for funding your home care services include two main funding programs Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) and Home Care Packages (HCP). There is also private funding. Private funding can be a great solution whilst waiting for government funding, if you haven’t qualified for funding or simply want more services than you have been allocated.
The Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) can help you access subsidised entry-level support services to live independently and safely at home. This program is recommended to those who need one or two services, or while waiting for Home Care Package funding.
Our range of CHSP services include
- Social Support Individual
- Social Support Group
- Flexible in-Home Support
Home Care Packages are a government funded program designed to support older people to live at home independently by providing Home Care services. Services range from personal services, support services and clinical care all designed to assists with everyday living and optimise wellbeing.
Once you have been assigned Home Care Package we will work with you to create a plan that suits your needs. To find out whether you are eligible for a Home Care Package, you need to call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422. We are here to help you through the process call us on 1300 147 147 or fill in the form below to get in touch.
To be eligible for the Commonwealth Home Support Programme or the Home Care Package you must meet some needs and age requirements that check:
- How much assistance you need with everyday tasks
- That you are 65 years or older (50 years or older for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people).
Please call My Aged Care contact centre on 1800 200 422 to discuss how you can access Australian Government-funded aged care services.
Self-funding services can be a great solution whilst waiting for government funding, if you haven’t qualified for funding or simply want more services than you have been allocated. If you need services immediately you could consider privately funding your home care. Although you won’t receive a rebate, you’ll have access to all our high-quality services without the hassle of waiting lists.
Private funding can also be used to top up your package or government funding with additional privately funded services.
Call us on 1300 147 147 and we will talk you through the process.
