Who is the Commonwealth Home Support Programme suited to?
This service could be right for you if:
- you only need a small amount of support to maintain your independence at home
- you are on a low Home Care Package level, waiting for approval for a higher level, and need some services to tie you over while you wait
- you are on the waiting list for a Home Care Package and need an interim service until a package is allocated to you
CHSP eligibility depends on your support needs. You can find out if you are eligible by applying for an assessment with My Aged Care. If you need some help, our Getting Started page is a good place to start.
How much are Commonwealth Home Support Programme fees?
Government funding for the Commonwealth Home Support Programme is paid directly to CHSP providers. Those providers then use that CHSP funding to provide their services to you at a lower cost.
You are expected to pay a contribution towards the cost of your care. To see LiveBetter’s fees for Commonwealth Home Care Programme services, visit our Home Care Services Pricing page.
What if I can’t afford a contribution?
If you can’t afford to contribute towards your care, you won’t miss out on the help you need. Providers have policies to protect those least able to contribute.
Please contact us if you are experiencing financial difficulties.
What if my needs increase while I’m on the Commonwealth Home Support Programme?
Although the CHSP is an ongoing service, it does not increase support as your needs increase. If you’re finding that you need more help than what your CHSP services can provide, you may need to be reassessed for other aged care services. Feel free to give us a call if you’d like to chat to an aged care expert about this.
