Home Care Packages
Matthew Flinders Home Care Packages enable choice, control and flexibility surrounding all service provision. We operate in accordance with the Consumer Directed Care Principles and facilitate a regalement approach for all care.
We will support and empower you to make your own choices and to design a plan for individualised support based on your personal goals, interests and care needs. We support you to remain living independently in your own home for as long as possible, to continue to be actively involved with your community and to maximise quality of life by nurturing and maintaining your independence and wellness. Level 1, 2, 3 and 4 packages are provided
How do you access a home care package?
