The cost of aged care in Australia in care homes is undeniably expensive. That is why many people have started to consider in-home care. More affordable than a care home, the demand for at home aged care has also been steadily growing in demand throughout the years. To help with this demand, thousands of home care packages have been created.

So what aged care packages are available?
Well, there are four levels that Home Caring has that offers a range of personal care that are suitable. Ranging from basic care to the highest level of care, there is a care package that will suit your loved one’s needs and requirements – whether it be in terms of medical, physical or mental.
Firstly, Level One. Perfect for those that just need to minimal amount of care (perhaps they have an illness or injury), Level One includes a carer that will transport your loved one to and from the shops or to a social event, they will go around the shops with them to buy groceries, cook meals when they want help with them and will clean around their home. This basic level of care allows your loved one to still be independent but the carer will still be on hand when they need them.
Secondly, Level Two. Very similar to the above level, it is perfect for those that need basic help but can mostly look after themselves. In this level, instead of the carer visiting once a week, they would come to visit three to four times a week. They will help with all that are listed above and will keep your loved one company throughout their time at the house. Living alone can undeniably be lonely, therefore having a carer visit their home regularly will be a comfort to them. No one wants to be isolated away from the outside world – no matter what your age. Aged care assistance at home is the solution to this.
Thirdly, Level Three. This is far more advanced than the above level. This is because it is more suitable for those who need full medical support, assistance with preparing meals throughout the day and other help such as gardening or with other allied services. On the higher end in terms of costs and the level of care, they will be visited most days of the week. This is perfect for those looking for the perfect balance between independence and assistance.
And lastly, Level Four. A fully comprehensive package, this level is at the highest end of the spectrum for the level of care. For those that need constant monitoring and care, the carers will visit the individuals every day. Ideal for those with conditions such as dementia, this tier option is the most expensive due to the level of care that they receive. Carers will make sure that those that require specialised care are looked after appropriately, that their minds are kept stimulated and that they manage the taking of medications.
