How do I get this support?
When you first contact My Aged Care, they will assess whether you are eligible for CHSP or a Home Care Package. CHSP is considered entry-level, to give you that little bit of extra support you need at home, and provides you with a few specific services.
Most people on the Home Care Package waitlist receive interim CHSP services.
In recognition of the vital role that carers play, the program also supports carer relationships through providing planned respite care services for frail, older people. This allows regular carers to take a break from their usual caring responsibilities.See if you’re eligible
