Self manage your home care package with Better Caring
Take control and get more with your funding
Double your hours of support from people you choose
Self-managing your home care package means our Approved Provider partners can offer a super low administration fee, freeing up more funding for you to spend on your services. Here’s how you could benefit.
Build your team around your life
Unlike standard Home Care Packages, self-management allows you to select, hire and schedule your own care workers through the Better Caring website.
Sign up to bettercaring.com.au for free, and start searching for available care workers in your area or bring along existing supports or people you know in your local community.
Contact care workers directly to get to know them better. Agree rates, hours and services that work for you both.
In the meantime, you can select one of our Approved Home Care Provider partners to cost-effectively host your package and provide case management.
Approve & Pay
Once you have selected a provider to host your package, you can start booking workers on Better Caring. We’ll do the rest.
Our Approved Home Care Provider partners will host your package with low fees and flexible case management, allowing you to choose and self-schedule independent workers from the Better Caring platform. Call us on 1300 736 573 if you’d like help choosing which provider is right for you.

Design your care to fit your life
“Better Caring has empowered me to select my own workers and decide on what type of support I receive and when. And because I have lower admin fees I have more hours of support for the same funding. It’s a common sense solution and one that allows me to live my life as I choose. And because my workers and I have chosen each other it means we have a close working relationship from the very beginning.”
“Although I am only 102, I do need a little Better Caring and I must say that it’s absolutely wonderful.”
“The best benefit of using Better Caring was having a really personalised, flexible service that delivered above and beyond our expectations. It’s become a new life for my father. His life is improving, and it’s marvellous.”
