Self-Managed Home Care Package

Self-Managed Home Care

Carer’s Link is a locally owned and operated company with a rich history of over 20 years of dedicated service to the greater Brisbane area. As your partner in maintaining independence and well-being, we specialize in delivering top-notch services for our valued customers under the Home Care Package (HCP) funding. 

What is a Home Care Package?

A Home Care Package is a government-funded support system designed for older Australians living in and around the greater Brisbane area who wish to continue living in the comfort of their homes. At Carer’s Link, we understand that each individual has unique needs and goals, and our custom-tailored Home Care Packages are created with this in mind.

Carer’s Link: How Our Self-Managed Home Care Works

Experience the flexibility and empowerment of government-funded self-managed home care packages with Carer’s Link. Here’s a simplified overview of the process:

Package Administration Fee

Rather than relying solely on a traditional provider, Carer’s Link offers you the option to self-manage your Home Care Packages. A nominal percentage (x%) of your package funds is a Package Management Fee to cover administrative tasks. This fee encompasses essential services such as managing invoices and handling accounting matters, ensuring transparency and efficiency.

Your Role in Coordinating

With Carer's Link, self-management lets you coordinate your care. This empowering approach allows you to make informed decisions regarding utilising your allocated funds. Take charge of tailoring your care to enhance your overall quality of life. Carer's Link is here to support you in navigating this process, ensuring a personalised and empowering experience in managing your home care.

Carer’s Link: Empowering Your Autonomy with Self-Managed Home Care Packages

The Australian Home Care Package (HCP) program has four unique home support levels, each associated with different funding levels. At Carer’s Link, we recognize that managing home care packages is not a one-size-fits-all endeavour. While self-management can be an empowering choice for some, it may be suitable only for certain individuals. We’re here to help you navigate and determine the best approach to your needs and preferences.

Tailored Support for Diverse Needs
