Home care – complying with the new rules

09 Sep 2014

All clients receiving care under a home care package must be offered a home care agreement whether on a CDC or non-CDC basis before receiving services.

On 1 July 2014 legislative changes introduced new income tested care fee rules for clients entering into a home care agreement post 1 July 2014 and disclosure obligations for providers that must be included in a home care agreement.

Home care providers must offer clients entering services after 1 July a compliant home care agreement. Simply Legal has home care agreements for CDC and non-CDC services that are compliant with current legislation. Our home care agreements are the only agreements endorsed by LASA nationally as the recommended agreements for their members.
