Program aims to keep frail older people living independently
FROM July 1, the Australian Government launched the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) which provides entry level support services designed to keep frail older people living independently in their own homes for as long as possible.
Services currently provided through Home and Community Care (HACC) such as domestic assistance, personal care, social support etc, are being transitioned across to the new CHSP.
However, there will be changes to fees as per a national Fees Policy still to be finalised.
Anyone requiring new or additional services will need to call the My Aged Care Contact Centre on 1800 200 422 for eligibility, assessment and referral.
You can choose your preferred service provider.
