FAQs

What is a HCP?

 A Home Care Package is an Australian government-funded program designed to support older people in maintaining independent living at home. There are four package levels tailored to individual needs, granting recipients autonomy in deciding how to allocate their allocated funds. In collaboration with InCasa Country, our team works alongside you, and the case manager or adviser assists in creating a personalised Care Plan. These packages are established for the long term, subject to periodic reviews to accommodate evolving needs.

How can I get a Home Care Package?

You will need to be assessed by the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) to see if you are eligible for a HCP.  We can help you with this, contact us for a confidential chat.

How long does it take to be approved for a Home Care Package

The total process can take some months, depending on the level of support you need.  if you think you require a Home Care Package to be supported better in your home, the sooner you start the application process the better.  We are here to help if you need.

What if I am already with another service provider?

You are entitled to change your service provider if you feel that your needs are not being met or requirements have changed.  There is no fee to do this, and we can work with you to make this happen.

I do not know what assistance I may be eligible for; can you help?

We can work with you to see what assistance is available for you to Stay In Place through My Aged Care.  We can arrange an appointment with you in your home or our Resource Hub and work through the process with you.

If people want to be home care contractors, what do they do?

People can register to be a home care contractor or support worker, through Mable and get paid for providing services to people in their community. This can be something as simple as taking a person to appointments, light housekeeping, gardening, social outings or more complex care.

How are home care contractors / support workers screened? Is it safe?

Home Care contractors are required to undergo a national police clearance, provide 100 points of ID and two references, have current first aid qualifications and complete an online profile on the Mable platform. No personal care or clinical care can be provided unless the contractor has the appropriate nationally recognised qualifications. There is strict governance around incident reporting and all contractors must provide detailed reports after each shift to ensure compliance.

Will you get the same home care contractor each time – is there consistency?

We aim to keep consistency with home care contractors wherever possible and the role of the Staying In Place concierge is to work closely with clients to find the best fit for their needs and contractors that they have rapport with.

Do you have to go through My Aged Care or can you book privately?

Staying In Place Busselton can help clients navigate My Aged Care to access a Home Care Package. Private clients who require home assistance can contact InCasa Country directly to discuss their individual requirements.

What’s stopping you from going onto Mable without going through Staying in Place?

Private clients and the general public can use Mable without needing to go through Staying In Place. Mable isn’t just for Aged Care clients but also for recipients of NDIS funding.
