A personalised flexible service run by caring locals for our community
Milang and District Community Association Inc. is excited to offer an extension of the current Community Care service into the higher level Home Care Packages being offered by My Aged Care.
There is a significant need to provide continuity of care to our older residents who have increased levels of home care. We will ensure you have support services in place to assist you to remain independent at home for as long as you wish.
We are proud of our community collaboration and following several focus groups held in Clayton Bay and Milang we can now offer the services you have told us you want.
Our trained and professional staff are committed and caring locals who are willing to go the extra mile to ensure our service is second to none.
If you require further assistance understanding the new system or how to access Home Care Packages, please telephone Lyn and the Community Care team at Milang Old School House Community Centre on 8537 0687 to have a confidential conversation about how we can help you.
Home care packages aim to provide more complex support at home
- Help consumers to stay at home for as long as possible
- Give choice and flexibility in the way that care and support is provided to the consumer.
There are four levels of Home Care Packages which are designed to provide the care that is needed now. Home Care Levels 1 and 2 help people with basic or low level care needs; Levels 3 and 4 help people with intermediate to high care needs. The Home Care Packages Program includes personal care, support services and nursing, allied health and clinical services.
The Australian Government pays a subsidy to an approved home care provider to provide care and services to consumers. The amount of funding depends on the level of the Home Care Package that is being received.
