Aged Care packages

Aged Care, Home Care and Disability for Older Australians (DSOA) packages will vary and are assessed according to your needs. Orders for products under these packages will be invoiced direct to your provider. For more information please visit Access Australian aged care information and services | My Aged Care.

Continence Aids Payment Scheme (CAPS)
Many older Australians with or without a funding package, are eligible for the CAPS funding program. For approved participants
CAPS funds can be directly deposited into the participant's bank account, enabling you to shop the Topcat website by choosing your products, adding them to your cart, and seamlessly checking out using your personal banking information.

Who Qualifies for the Continence Aids Payment Scheme (CAPS)?

CAPS, an Australian Government initiative, provides financial support to individuals requiring assistance with continence product costs. Eligibility criteria include:

  • Permanent and severe incontinence of bladder and/or bowel due to an eligible neurological condition; OR
  • Permanent and severe incontinence of bladder and/or bowel resulting from another qualifying condition, with a Centrelink or Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) Pensioner Concession Card.

How Do I Apply for CAPS?

The CAPS programme has its own criteria and application process. The official CAPS website offers comprehensive information, but it's highly advisable to engage with a Continence Nurse Consultant. They can assist you through the application process, helping you understand your specific needs and the most suitable products for you.
