Iris Manor will be considered your private home, thus allowing you to still access your Home Care Package to assist in the funding of your personal care.

What is a home care package?

Home Care packages are funded by the Federal Government, that provide you with access to a range of subsidized services to support you and keep independent, comfortable, and safe in your own home.

These packages range from Level 1 (Basic Care needs) through to Level 4 (High Care Needs).

How does it work within the Supported Residential Service?

After being assessed and approved as eligible and then receiving an offer of funding from the Government we will meet with you and your family representative to talk through the home care package program and what you would like the home care package to provide.

A home care package service agreement is provided, a care plan is prepared which idenifise the home care package service with an individualised budget.
