The FCP compliments but does not replace Government Funded Home Care. A Government Home Care Package does enable people with lower level care needs to continue living in their home, however this funding may not be sufficient if their care, lifestyle or social needs change. Freedom has a unique and innovative approach providing a complete range of care and support.
At Freedom, supplementing government funding (Home Care Packages) with the FCP is designed to enable residents to stay in the comfort of their own Freedom home in a social and welcoming community environment for as long as they choose to be there. The FCP operates on a cost recovery basis, meaning we are not profiting from it.
Our Freedom team will assist residents who wish to join the FCP to also access any and all government funding to which they are eligible and entitled to. Accessing and utilising Government Home Care Package funding is therefore a requirement of joining the FCP and ensures the program is not only fair and equitable, but also keeps the FCP fee as low as possible.
