Eligibility is based on an individual’s care needs as determined through an ACAT assessment. To be eligible individuals must be:
- an older person who needs coordinated services to help them remain living independently at home.
While an individual’s financial situation won’t affect their eligibility, they may also need an income assessment through Services Australia to work out exactly how much they may be asked to contribute.
If a low level of support is required, the Commonwealth Home Support Programme may be better suited.
