What is CHSP?

The Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) helps older Australians maintain their independence longer by funding Aged Care services to keep them well, safe, connected and self-sufficient.

If you’re over 65 years of age (50 years for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people) or over 50 years and on a low income, homeless or are at risk of being homeless; and still living at home, the CHSP can help you with everyday tasks and support to enhance your health and wellbeing.

Whatever independence looks like for you, Coastlink and the CHSP are here to help you achieve it.

As a registered provider, Coastlink is funded to provide its wide range of aged care services through the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP).

A My Aged Care referral to the program is essential.

What is a Home Care Package?

A Home Care Package allows you to have greater control over your in-home aged care.

Home Care Packages are provided for people who need more support than the basic level available through the Commonwealth Home Support Program.

A Home Care Package has the flexibility to allow you to make choices about the types of support you access, who delivers them, and how and when those services are delivered.

You can find out more about determining your eligibility by using the ‘Eligibility Checker’ on the My Aged Care website.

The first step to accessing government-funded aged care services is to check your eligibility for an assessment.
