Aged care income testing for Home Care

Home Care is funded by the Australian Government through the Home Care Packages Program and provides aged care services to people in their own home.

The Aged Care Fees Income Assessment form is used to determine the daily rate of Home Care fees payable by a care recipient who is planning to start or has started a Home Care Package. The information is also used to calculate the amount of government assistance that you as the provider may receive on the care recipient’s behalf.
