Home Care

'Home Care' is a government-funded service for eligible people, providing funding to cover the assistance you need to help you feel confident at home.

We understand the importance of staying at home in your familiar environment: our Community Services Team can help you safely maintain your independence and daily routine, feeling confident doing so.

Vasey RSL Care is an approved provider of the government's Home Care Packages, and the DVA's Veterans’ Home Care service. Our advisors will guide you through the process of developing a plan for care and services (Personal Care Plan) to meet your needs so you can continue to enjoy the comfort and familiarity of your own home and local community.

Quality care to maintain independence

Home Care Package Program: 

The Home Care Package Program is funded by Government to eligible people to provide personalised care.

Our qualified support staff meet with you to understand your needs and help you design your support plan. Services are designed to provide assistance in those areas you need help – that could be:

  • Personal care (bathing, dressing)
  • Shopping and meal preparation
  • Cleaning
  • Transport
  • Mobility and safety equipment
  • Healthcare and allied health
  • Gardening and home maintenance
  • Advice and guidance
  • Or something unique to you.


Veterans’ Home Care

This service is available to those who have a Veteran Gold Card and those with a Veteran White Card with an accepted service-related condition. This service provides for lower level of support needs to help you retain independence in your own home.

Services include:

  • Domestic assistance
  • Personal care
  • Respite care
  • Lawn mowing
  • Safety-related home/garden maintenance


While excellent care is essential, enjoying life is equally important. We’ll enable you to stay engaged with the things you love while staying confidently in your familiar surroundings.

Applying for a Home Care Package

A Home Care Package is for people aged 65 or over and is based on an assessment of your needs made by the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). Their assessment will determine whether you will receive home care funding, and if so, which level funding it will be – Level 1, 2, 3 or 4.

You can check your eligibility and register on the government’s My Aged Care website.. My Aged Care will ask you questions to understand your needs and care arrangements. They may then arrange for a trained assessor to visit you at home to discuss your support needs.

Once you have registered, the Department will put you on a waitlist until your funding Package is approved. Once approved, our staff will be able to set up the services you need.

Privately Funding Your Home Care Services

If you need support quickly, self-funded home care is always available while you wait for your Home Care Package funding.

Similarly, if your funding does not cover all you would like, we can help you decide what is most important – or you can contribute to make up the difference.
