Aged care programs for the health sector
We subsidise organisations to provide home care services for 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.
The CHSP provides entry-level support for older people who need some help to stay at home. Aged care service providers work with them to live independently in their homes and communities. As a service provider, find out what you need to know about this program.
We fund 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.
