Serving our Community

Home Care Packages Level 2

The Home Care Packages (HCP) level 2 assists older persons to remain at home and continue to live independent lives. The aim of the program is to provide a comprehensive range of services to people in their homes in order to avoid premature entry to residential care. Co.As.It delivers culturally and linguistically appropriate HCPs aimed at older Italians, offering them a service provided by bilingual workers who are also familiar with the Italian culture.

HCPs are targeted to older people living at home who have:

  • A variety of care needs such as physical, medical, social and emotional
  • A need for services that are not provided/available from other community services
  • A preference to remain home with appropriate support
  • A need for ongoing monitoring and review of changing care needs
  • Access difficulties to other services.

The range of services available to clients under this program include:

  • Showering/bathing or personal hygiene
  • Assistance with dressing
  • Light housework
  • Laundry assistance
  • Home respite for carers
  • Shopping
  • Assistance with meal preparation
  • Socialisation
  • Transport to and from appointments, eg medical
  • Culturally relevant assistance eg. Social outings or church

This will be negotiated with the recipient according to the services provided, and as outlined by the funding body.
