Homecare Packages

Come along to find out more about


Colin Young, the Homecare Package Manager at Just Better Care, Balgowlah will be speaking about:

  • the My Aged Care reforms and future changes planned to in-home aged care services
  • what types of subsidised assistance can be provided to assist people to remain in their own homes
  • the My Aged Care referral and assessment process
  • the National wait list for Homecare Packages
  • costs in relation to in-home support

Accessing services to remain in the community can be complex and confusing. Many older people and their families benefit from guidance to help them navigate the system to receive the care they require.
He is happy to take questions and potentially arrange for a home visit.

Choose the in-home support that’s right for you!
