Aged care programs for the health sector
Home Care Packages Program
The Australian Government subsidises organisations to provide home care services to eligible older people. As an approved provider of Home Care Packages, make sure you understand how funding works, the fees you can charge, and what your responsibilities are.
Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP)
The CHSP provides entry-level support for older people who need some help to stay at home. Service providers work with them to maintain their independence and keep them as well as possible. Find out what service providers need to know about this program.
Aged care assessment programs
The Australian Government funds Regional Assessment Services (RAS) and Aged Care Assessment Teams (ACAT) to provide aged care assessment services. As an assessor, view our guides and resources to help you conduct and manage assessments in My Aged Care.
