Published

The federal government has been slammed for leaving high level care out of a $325 million investment to create an additional 6,100 home care packages.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison made the announcement on Wednesday, saying the rollout of the level 1, 2 and 3 packages means there will be 164,200 home care packages in 2022-23.

The additional funding takes the number of new packages created since the 2018-19 budget to 50,000.

Minister for Aged Care Richard Colbeck said approximately 2,035 packages will be immediately available across levels 1, 2 and 3.
