Who can access AMCS Home Care Packages?

If you are aged 65 or more you can access a Home Care Package but you will need to be assessed first by an Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS). The ACAS team will talk to you about how well you are managing at home, and then provide you with a letter that tells you what level of home care package you have been approved to receive.

There are four levels of home care:

Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Level 4
Supports people with
basic care needs
Supports people with
low-level care needs
Supports people with
intermediate care needs
Supports people with
high-level care needs

How can I be assessed by the
Aged Care Assessment Service?

You can contact My Aged Care directly to be referred to ACAS for an assessment or a referral can be made by your doctor or community care service provider.  If you want us to support you with this, please contact us via ph: 03 8371 2301 or email: info@amcservices.org.au

What will a Home Care Package cost?

The Australian Government pays for most of the cost of aged care in Australia. You may be asked to contribute towards the cost of your care if you can afford to do so, however you will never be denied the care you need because you cannot afford it.

Any fees will be discussed during the care planning process and the agreed amount will be documented in your agreement with AMCS.
