Live at home with lots of support
Choosing home care services can be overwhelming, but our approachable staff can help you get started.
My Aged Care is the gateway to care in your home and Barossa Village staff can assist you through the lengthy and sometimes confusing process.
Once allocated a Home Care Package, your assigned care coordinator will work with you to deliver tailored home care services and support to meet your goals.
We can visit clients throughout the following areas:
- Barossa Council
- Light Regional Council
- Areas of Goyder
- Areas of Adelaide Plains Council
Contact Barossa Village if you are unsure of service delivery in your area.
You may be eligible for Australian Government funded aged care services if you’re an older person, usually 65+ (or 50+ for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people), finding it harder to do the things you used to do.
You will need to have a face-to-face assessment of your care needs arranged through My Aged Care to determine if you are eligible.
Types of Care
Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP)
The aim of the CHSP is to help older people live as independently as possible at home with a focus on working with you, rather than doing for you, to help you achieve your goals. CHSP can be actioned within four to six weeks from assessment.
All CHSP services are accessed through My Aged Care.
Home Care Packages
There are four levels of home care packages to help meet the different levels of care needs. During your aged care assessment, your assessor will discuss your current care needs and determine the best level to meet them:
- Level 4 – High level care needs
- Level 3 – Intermediate care needs
- Level 2 – Low level care needs
- Level 1 – Basic care needs
After assessment and receiving your referral for aged care services, you can advise My Aged Care that Barossa Village is your preferred provider for care.
Home Care Packages can usually take 12 to 18 months after you have been assessed. To assist you during this waiting period, help can be provided through Barossa Village Home Care, which is a privately funded service.
All Home Care Packages are accessed through My Aged Care.
