Home Care Packages Program

Merri Health

Home Care Packages Program provides older people who want to stay at home with access to a range of ongoing personal services, support services and clinical care that help them with their day-to-day activities. Merri Health's experienced Care Advisors will work with consumers to identify their needs and goals and develop a care and services plan. Consumers may choose to have the package fully managed and we’ll coordinate all of the home care services. If consumers prefer to manage their own care, we charge a smaller fee that covers the cost of the mandated annual re-assessment and support plan review.

Eligible clients are consumers who have been assigned a Home Care Package
