Are you an eligible Veteran, widow, or widower?

The first step to accessing the Veterans’ Home Care Program is organizing an assessment. To be eligible for an assessment, you must be:

  • A Veteran Gold Card holder
  • A Veteran White Card holder with an accepted service-related condition or injury
  • A carer or family member of the above (eligible in some cases)

To get started, contact your Veterans’ Home Care Assessment Agency on 1300 550 450. If you’re not eligible for an assessment, or you are waiting to be assessed, we can still support you with our Private Home Care services.

I would like to thank you and MiCare for giving me this opportunity to have a laptop to study the IT program as I will start the course soon. The course will be two days in the class face to face and two days online so it helps me saving time to study at home instead of going to the library.
