Home Care Package Rates – Updated November 2017

 

The following information should be used as a guide – we are always open to discuss your individual circumstances and aim to be flexible wherever possible.

Our ordinary hourly rates can be found at the bottom of this page – however, they alone might not help you to understand what you will receive through your funded home care package.

There are 2 significant factors which will determine how many hours of care you can expect to receive:

  • The level of package the Aged Care Assessment Team determined you are eligible for.
  • The contribution that Centrelink determined you must make toward you package budget, based on you assets and income (between $0 and $200 per week).

Without knowing your exact circumstances, here is a guide to what you can expect – should you elect to spend your package budget with Bannister In Home Care:

Package level Approximate Weekly Subsidy Approximate Weekly Hours of Care
Level 1 $156.00 (2 – 3 Hours)
Level 2 $284.00 (5 – 6 Hours)
Level 3 $625.00 (9 – 12 Hours)
Level 4 $951.00 (15 – 20 Hours)

Other costs which may be factored in to your care:

  • Administration: (between 5% -15%)

Explained: Part of our obligation to help you access your package funds involves providing you and the department of Health with a budget of funds and expenditure, which incurs an administrative charge. This charge also goes towards our payroll management and various overheads involved in running a home care business. Depending on the nature of your requirements this will vary.

  • Case Management: between (0% – 15%)

Explained: Many clients that wish to remain independent at home require a great deal of coordination between our managers, care staff, family and specialist services. We don’t assume that there will be a great deal of management involved in coordinating services and we are transparent regarding why we apply these charges when we do.

  • Home Mods/Other expenses: (???%)

Explained: One great thing about home care packages is that they allow for you to pay for things like home modifications or technological devices that help to meet your goals as a home care package client. You must accumulate funds over time to afford these costs so we work out a practical % to withhold on a case by case basis – this will only ever be a short term charge.

  • Exit Fee: (Max $150)

Explained: Should you need to transfer you package away from us at any stage, there will always be a few hours work in reconciling budgets and potentially transferring unspent funds. To make sure we reflect the cost of taking these steps we reserve the right to charge $150 if necessary to ensure that you move seamlessly from our service to your next stage.
