The Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) is a government funding program that provides services to help older people stay independent and live in their own homes. services may include home care, respite care, transport, meal preparation, shopping, and minor home modifications.

CHSP is available to all eligible older Australians aged 65 and over, or 50 and over for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Home Care Packages

Home care packages are a government-funded program that provides support for people who wish to remain living independently at home. The packages are tailored to meet the individual needs of each person and can include a range of services such as personal care, domestic assistance, transport, meals, and social activities.

The level of support provided by a home care package depends on the needs of the individual and can be increased or decreased over time as their needs change. 

National Disability Insurance Scheme

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a program that provides financial support to eligible Australians who have a permanent disability. The NDIS can help people with the cost of essential services, equipment and therapies, as well as provide access to community participation programs.

The NDIS is overseen by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), which works with state and territory governments to deliver the program. 

Private Funding

Private funding for home care comes from a variety of sources, including family members, philanthropic organisations, and private insurance companies. The amount of private funding available for home care varies depending on the needs of the individual and the resources of the family.

However, private funding can often help to supplement public funding and provide additional support for people who need home care services.

Veterans’ home care can provide much-needed assistance to those who have served our country. Whether they need help with activities of daily living, transportation to medical appointments, or simply companionship, home care can make a big difference in the lives of veterans.

What is the meaning of home care?

Home care is non-medical care and assistance provided in the home. It can be for individuals of any age who may need help with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, eating, or using the restroom.

Home care can also include more specialised services such as aged care services, transportation support services to a doctor’s appointment or help with medication management.

Who qualifies for home care services?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. Home care services are available to people of all ages, from infants to seniors. However, most home care recipients are elderly adults who need help with activities of daily living.

Some home care recipients are people with disabilities, chronic illnesses, or cognitive impairments. Others may simply need assistance after a hospital stay or surgery.

How can I apply for home care?

If you or a loved one needs home care services, the first step is to contact a home care agency. A care manager from the local office will meet with you to assess your needs and determine if home care is the right solution

If home care is deemed appropriate, the agency will develop a care plan and assign a caregiver to provide services. Some home care agencies also offer short-term or respite care, which can be helpful if a family caregiver needs a break.

How can I pay for home care?

There are a number of ways to pay for home care, including private pay clients, long-term care insurance, and government programs like Medicare.

Some home care agencies also offer sliding scale fees based on income, and some may provide discounts for veterans or people with certain medical conditions.
