Most providers ask for 14 days` notice, but be sure to review your agreement, as some providers ask for 4 weeks` notice. The end of a home care package is easy. If you want to switch to another provider, move to a retirement home, or simply stop home care, it`s easy to stop your Home Care Package. Use your Home Care Package to modify your home You can refuse your home care package if you find that you have to pay high fees based on your income and therefore do not see any benefit in accepting the Home Care Package. If you are expecting a high-level home care package, you are often offered a package at a lower level. This should try to help you with a little care while you wait – however, if you earn an income above the base rate, you will most likely have to pay an income-related fee. In many cases, the income-related fee is more than the amount of funding you would get from the low-level home care package. If that`s the case, it doesn`t make much sense for most people to accept the package, as they would end up paying more fees than they receive funding. However, in some cases, we have seen that people accept a low-level package because they want to start with the care of their supplier and know that a higher quality package will soon be on the way. Switching is simple! Home Care Packages have been designed to give you control of the care and support you get. You can change providers at any time. Note, however, that some providers charge exit fees, so be sure to check your contract.
No no. As soon as you enter into a home care contract with a provider, the provider must provide services until you decide to terminate the contract. They are not bound by any contract with the supplier and can withdraw at any time. Before you sign with your chosen supplier, be sure to read the agreement and ask as many questions as you want to make sure you fully understand everything. All you need to do to terminate your current home care contract is to inform your provider that you no longer wish to receive their services. . . .
