What is the difference between the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) and Home Care Packages (HCPs)

A Commonwealth Home Support Program provides basic support services such as help with daily tasks or entry level care which assist you in living at home independently. To receive these services you need to have an assessment through the Regional Assessment Service (RAS) and we can assist in facilitating this.

If you have more complex needs you may be eligible for a Home Care Package. Home Care Packages allow you to access similar services as the Home Support Program but can also provide additional and/or higher level care services tailored to meet your needs. To receive these services you need to be assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) and again, we can assist in facilitating this.

There are 4 levels of Home Care Packages ranging from lower care packages (level 1 & 2) to higher care packages (level 3 & 4). The higher the package the more funding you have available for services.
For eligibility for both of these programs visit or you can email, call or click the link below to learn more.
