What is a Home Care Package?

Are you an older person wanting to continue living at home, but you need some assistance to manage?

If so, then a Home Care Package may be for you.  The Home Care Packages program is a government-subsidised program that provides long-term support for older people who want to stay living at home.

Home Care Packages with JCS

As an approved provider of aged care our goal is to work alongside you to access all your care and well-being requirements so that you can get the most from your Home Care Package. Changes were made recently to allow individuals to decide who provides their Home Care Package. This means if you are unhappy with your current provider, or you have located to another area, you can switch providers.

At JCS we work with you to ensure greater choice and flexibility enabling you to make the decision about the support and care that is right for you.

Active Ageing

At JCS, we promote a philosophy of healthy and active ageing through our Active Choices Active People model of service that promotes Consumer Directed Care (CDC) principles for individuals who access our services, which include:

  • opportunities to improve social participation to maintain or promote a person’s capacity to live as independently as possible.

  • a person-centered approach to support, promoting wellness and active participation in goal setting and decision making.

  • timely and flexible services that respond to a person and their needs.

Switching your Package to JCS

In 4 easy steps!

STEP 1: Contact our friendly and experienced team to discuss your needs and learn more about the services we can offer. We can also come to you in the comfort of your own home at no cost.    

STEP 2: When you switch to JCS, you will need to contact My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 and request a referral code so that JCS can activate this to start providing services. We will work with you if you require assistance through the process.

STEP 3: Contact your current package provider to let them know that you no longer require services from them. You will need to advise and agree with your current provider the date when your services will cease.

STEP 4: Once we have your My Aged Care referral code and the date you’ve agreed to end services with your current provider, we will commence the transition to JCS. One of our care coordinators will then visit you at home to develop your customised care plan, which of course, will be guided by you based on your needs and package budget.

Before switching to another provider you should be aware of your current provider’s conditions including any notice period or exit fees required. These should be outlined in your service agreement.
