-Home modifications and assistive technology: Modifications to your home to improve safety and accessibility, and the provision of assistive technology such as mobility aids and communication devices.

It’s important to note that Home Care Package funds cannot be used to pay for usual cost of living expenses, nor are they intended for the purchase of capital items or home renovations. In addition, the expenditure must be considered as an acceptable use of government funds and represent good value for money. Your Home Care Package provider can help you understand what services are available and how they can be tailored to meet your individual needs.
