Do you or a loved one need extra support at home?
Bellarine Community Health (BCH) is a registered Home Care Package provider delivering in-home support to community members on the Bellarine Peninsula. Our aim at BCH is to help you stay in your own home and stay connected to your family and community.
The Home Care Packages program supports older people with a range of care needs to live independently in their own home. Through a coordinated mix of services, a Home Care Package seeks to achieve individual goals and helps maintain a person's independence at home. This can include both in-home aged care services and supports to help people stay connected with their community.
A coordinated mix of services are available and may include:
- help with household tasks
- equipment (such as walking frames)
- minor home modifications
- personal care
- clinical care such as nursing, allied health and physiotherapy services.
Being eligible for a Home Care Package means that the government will subsidise the cost of your care. This makes the help you need much more affordable.
