Accessing In-Home Stroke Care Services

Home Care Packages

If you’re looking for in-home care for a stroke patient, the first step is to contact a Home Care Package provider. A Home Care Package is a government-funded program that provides funding for in-home care services. There are four levels of Home Care Packages, each of which provides a different level of funding for care.

National Disability Insurance Scheme

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) assists persons with disabilities, including stroke patients who have difficulty performing everyday activities, under the age of 65 in receiving the necessary support. Participants in the NDIS get cash for assistance with everyday life, community involvement, and goal attainment.

Private Funding

In-home care for a stroke survivor can also be funded privately. This means that the costs of care are not covered by the government but are instead paid for out-of-pocket by the client or their family. You can also ask your private health insurance provider, if you have, about insurance coverage for in-home care services.
