Aged Care Programs

Aged Care Home Care Packages

The Council provides aged care services through two different programs. These are called the Commonwealth Home Support Programme and Home Care Packages.

Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP)

CHSP is an entry level aged care program that helps you live independently at home. It provides small amounts of help such as meals or laundry, things that can help you to stay strong and well. My Aged Care tells us what sort of help you have been approved for.

The program can also provide help for a short time if you are recovering from an illness or injury, such as when someone has a stroke and comes home from hospital and just needs a little bit of help with everyday tasks.

Home Care Package (HCP)

You might need a Home Care Package if you have lots of different health problems and need more help to live at home safely.

There are four different levels of packages, with a level 1 package being the lowest and level 4 being the highest. The Government provides packages that match the person’s assessed needs.
