Are you receiving the aged care support you’re entitled to?

If you live at home and are receiving the pension, you could be entitled to a government funded Home Care Package.
Through this package, we can provide you with the assistance you need, so you can continue to enjoy an independent life from the comfort of your own home.

At the Benevolent Society we have a dedicated resource to help you through the process of applying for a Home Care Package, at no cost to you. Our team can also help you maximise your Home Care Package to ensure you get the services that you need most.

To discover more, call us on 1800 236 726 or submit the form below.

Funding of your package

Home Care Package funds aren't paid to you directly. They are used as a funding package for your Home Care Package provider (in this case The Benevolent Society) to cover the cost of the services you need.

One of our aged care team members can visit you in your home to understand your needs and tailor a package which will help you live your best life.

We provide transparency in our fee structure; hours of service vary depending on your service requirements and assessment level.
