Home Care Packages (HCP)
Short Term Restorative Care Packages
Consumers assigned a Home Care Package will be allocated a case manager who will work with you to develop a care plan to meet your assessed needs and goals. Within government guidelines, you can choose to spend your package funds on support, equipment, and services that relate to your health, wellbeing and care.
This can include; assistance with showering and dressing, domestic assistance such as cleaning essential areas of the house, laundry and bed making, assistance with shopping, escorted transport to appointments, meal preparations and assistance with special dietary needs, basic garden and lawn maintenance, medication assistance, in home respite, and access to social activities and programs.
Your case manager can also help you to ‘think outside the box’ and consider some options you may not have considered, but could assist you to remain independent. This could include; spring cleaning, professional laundering, podiatry, counselling, speech pathology, taxi vouchers to enable independent social access, mobility training to safely use public transport, basic cooking classes, payment towards some home modifications, personal support whilst travelling, exercise programs and classes like yoga, hydrotherapy and massage.
Home Care Packages are all about tailoring care to suit the needs of the consumer. We know that no two people are the same and we look forward to tailoring a care plan to suit your individual needs.
UPA’s private services allow people who are either unable, or do not wish to access funded services to receive services to help maintain independence and wellbeing.
The available services include personal care, domestic assistance, transport to and from appointments and other services tailored to suit your needs.
