Home Care Packages
Home Care Packages are funded by the Australian Government and are designed to support elderly Aboriginal people who wish to remain in their own home, in familiar surroundings, rather than move to residential care.

Before being accepted into this program, a member of the Aged Care Assessment team will visit you to determine your eligibility for this program. A Case Manager from TCS Tamworth will then do a home visit to help you plan the assistance you need, record what you have decided and arrange the care you need and provide ongoing monitoring of your services.
