There can be many different levels of home care packages depending on the needs of the clients. A senior home care provider can offer a variety of different packages to cater to different customers. 

In this article, we will talk about the different services provided by in-home health care services.

Home Care Package Level 1: If you require only the most fundamental level of care

This level of Home Care Package (HCP) assistance is intended to provide you with the fundamental support you need to continue living independently in your own home. It may require one or two visits per week from a care provider.

What components are included in a Level 1 Home Care Package? Support for your personal health, such as grooming and dressing, as well as assistance with meals, shopping, and transportation, can be included in HCP Level 1 care. This type of care can also include some assistance with cleaning and tidying up around the house.

Home Care Package Level 2: For those who require only minimal assistance with their daily activities.

This level of HCP is comparable to basic care and offers low-level assistance that is intended to provide you with a little bit of additional support so that you may remain independent at home for a longer period of time.

What components are included in a Level 2 Home Care Package? HCP Level 2 care may involve three or four visits per week from a care worker and may include assistance with cleaning and tidying around the house, supporting your personal health through activities such as grooming and dressing, or receiving some assistance with meals, shopping, and transportation.

Level 3 Home Care Package – If you require intermediate care
