The department is seeking an additional 40 in-home aged care providers (CHSP, HCP, STRC) and 5 residential aged care providers to participate in a data study that will shape the development of the new support at home program.
In November 2019, the Australian Government announced its intention to establish a new support at home program to deliver a seamless system of care that provides timely and flexible services that are tailored to consumer’s needs. This program will replace the CHSP, HCP, STRC and residential respite, as well as potentially adding new services to the program’s scope.
The expression of interest provides greater detail on the study and requirements to participate. Nominations are sought by Friday 18 June 2021.
To nominate, please complete the online survey. The short survey seeks information about your service size, what services you deliver and where, client volumes and other characteristics to ensure we recruit a representative sample of aged care providers.
