Home Care Packages: Provider’s Guide to Home Care Agreements

The ‘Home Care Today’ project ran from 2013 to June 2017. COTA Australia continues to provide access to Home Care Today resources which were current at June 2017. However they are no longer monitored or updated, and information may not be current.

This Providers Guide to Home Care Agreements has been prepared to assist organisations to develop or review their current agreement. The 51 stakeholders from the legal issues project identified that organisations needed to meet a number of competing demands in the agreement. There was a particular focus on the agreement being written in plain language that was easily understood by the older person receiving the service. The guide provides the legal parameters, suggestions for ways to develop and/or review the agreement and specific information about special groups and how to meet their needs.
