People are more than packages

Management fees for Home Care Packages can be some of the most complex information for a person to consider in the aged care enquiry process.

Fees and charges for aged care providers are freely available on the My Aged Care website, however, Caron Geracitano, acting Home Care Manager, says that Barossa Village always encourages anyone enquiring about aged care services in their home, to contact several aged providers for a comparison of fees and charges and different models of service.

“Each provider has its own model of service delivery, so it pays to investigate further.”

“Barossa Village for example, in addition to having its own team of Care Coordinators based here in the Barossa, also employs its own nursing staff, which other providers may outsource for service.”

Ms Geracitano explains, “Also having specialised contractors to deliver services in a package, means that a client can have a broad range of services, from window cleaning and gardening, right through to clinical care needs, delivered by Barossa Village.”

“With this model, we can include the cost of hours required to deliver a person’s care needs, clinical care, and ongoing face to face support, within the management and administration of these services, into one fee structure.”

Barossa Village offers a premium and affordable level of care that is developed in partnership with the client to fit within their government-provided subsidies.

The not for profit aged care provider encourages people to make an appointment to discuss their in-home care needs and home care package with a member of the community care team.  Their experienced staff will help to explain the My Aged Care process, what a Home Care Package means, and ensure you understand the management fees and charges associated with your care services.

“People are more than packages,” says Ms Geracitano, “We know that each person’s needs are specific to their situation, and with our community care team based locally, we can visit clients one on one, to deliver a client-directed care plan.”

Barossa Village prides itself in offering a greater level of direct services than most, when the client needs it, to stay safe and achieve their goals.

>> Community Care at Barossa Village is a team of skilled and experienced professionals who support older people throughout the Barossa region living in their homes.
