How to get started with a Home Care Package

HenderCare’s Jon Pinder and Carmen Jasper join 6PR’s Chris Ilsley in the studio to talk about ‘How to get started with a Home Care Package’, discussing what they are, how the system works and how HenderCare can help you get started.

Home Care Packages with HenderCare

For more than 13 years, HenderCare have been supporting older Perth residents who need a helping hand to stay in their own homes. Living your life the way you want is a priority, and this is where Home Care Packages and HenderCare can help.

A Home Care Package is a government-funded package that will help you receive services in your own home. These services might include cleaning, garden maintenance, help cooking your favourite meals, lending a hand getting you out and about to appointments, continence supplies and nursing care. HenderCare can provide all of these services, and they understand that the most important person in this equation is you.

How can you get a Home Care Package?

The first step is to have an ACAT assessment. This is the team that will decide if you need support, and how much funding you will have. There are four levels of Home Care Packages, from basic help through to more complex care.
