What is the Commonwealth Home Support Programme?

The Commonwealth Home Support Program or CHSP is a government subsidised program for over 65s who need a little bit of extra support. Visit My Aged Care to check if you meet the requirements for an assessment or if you are ready, apply for an assessment now. If your needs are more complex, a Home Care Package could be better suited to you.

 Frequently Asked Questions


What’s the difference between the Commonwealth Home Support Programme and Home Care Packages?

The CHSP program is designed to provide short term, interim funding for low needs care services, often when an individual is on the waitlist to be assigned a Home Care Package. For those requiring longer-term care, a Home Care Package is more appropriate. The idea of the HCP program is to provide a coordinated and tailored service to help older people with more complex care needs to continue living independently and happily at home. The Home Care Package holder will have to choose a provider to host their package, who will develop a care plan and individualised budget that will be used to deliver the care and services the individual needs. Vitality Club is also a HCP provider. Contact us to find out more.


Do I have to pay for CSHP services?

If you are eligible for the program, you’re expected to contribute to the cost of your care if you can afford to. The cost depends on the type of support and the provider. Vitality Club does charge a co-payment for CHSP services, you can see the prices on the price page. As all provider subsidies and fees are different, it’s best to contact My Aged Care to find the service provider that is the best fit for you.
