John is 89 and lives at home with his wife, Hannah. After his ACAT assessment, John was allocated a level 4 Home Care Package. He is experiencing the early stages of dementia, has continence issues and type 2 diabetes. John's mobility is limited and he uses a walking frame and sometimes uses a wheelchair when out in the community. His Home Care Package is designed to provide the care that John needs while still promoting Hannah's independence. John is a huge Port Power fan.

John also has 2 hours of garden maintenance every fortnight to make sure the garden is tidy and safe.
John contributes the Basic Daily Fee of $10.32 and his level 4 Home Care Package means the government contributes $137.77 per day towards his services.
If John ever decides to change service providers, we won't charge him an Exit Fee. This is just one of the ways we support consumer choice.
