How It Works

The care sector in Australia is one of the best in the world; however it can be very confusing for people who are trying to explore their options. We’ve tried to make it a little easier…

If you are over 65, you apply for government subsidies through My Aged Care. You can contact My Aged Care by phone or online to request an assessment by one of the My Aged Care team.

There are two types of assessments:

Commonwealth Home Support Program
"I have low-care needs and just need a little extra support in my home"
This assessment identifies the type and frequency of subsidised in-home and respite care services you are entitled to through the COMMONWEALTH HOME SUPPORT PROGRAM (CHSP).

  1. Apply for an assessment through My Aged Care

  2. A RAS assessor visits your home to determine the level of support you need

  3. The RAS assessor determines, often on-the-spot, the type of services that will be subsidised

  4. RAS forwards a referral to a funded organisation OR  the client is given a referral code to contact a service provider of their choice.

  5. RangeCare can deliver your service requests


  7. If you are waiting for funding availability, you may like to consider a private, fee-for-service arrangement.


Commonwealth Home Care Packages
"I need a more coordinated approach to my care"
This assessment identifies whether you are suitable for a HOME CARE PACKAGES and which level of package best suits your needs. People with a Home Care Package are assigned a dedicated case manager to oversee and manage their care.

  1. Apply for an assessment through My Aged Care

  2. An ACAT assessor visits your home to determine the level of support you need

  3. A home care package is approved (levels 1-4)

  4. You are placed on the national wait list while you wait to be assigned a package

  5. Once a package has been assigned by My Aged Care, the client can choose a service provider


  7. While waiting for your package to be assigned, you may like to consider taking advantage of RangeCare’s private, fee-for-service options.

Private, Fee for Service Support

RangeCare's full suite of services can be offered by private arrangement.

Private, fee-for-service support is available to anyone in the community, including people who are:

  • undergoing medical treatment and during recovery

  • adjusting to a new way of living as a result of injury or surgery

  • requiring assistance after childbirth or other significant life event.


To ensure that we can provide you with the best possible care, we will always commence with a comprehensive care assessment so that we can fully understand your care needs. This will also help us to best match a support worker to your personal circumstances.

What Our Clients Say...

It is more than three years since we joined Rangecare and I want to thank everyone who does something for us. The people who answer the phone and those who deliver meals and take us to Doctors etc. You treat us with dignity, with a happy smile on your faces. We appreciate everything you do for us. The Rangecare Family make life so much easier especially with us not having family close by. We look forward to hearing the doorbell and seeing you. You are here for us on good days and the bad days. We should tell you more often and not take you for granted. 
So a big THANK YOU to everyone from us both.
