Community Care

The aim of Community Care is to help the frail aged and people with a disability live independently in their homes as long as possible, to support their carers in their caring role and to improve the general health and well-being of older Australians.

Community Aged Care Packages (CACP) are a key element in ensuring that staying at home rather than entering residential care is a real option for those older Australians who choose to do so. Older people must first be assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (this is free) and if accepted for a aged care package will be charged a fee.
