How I can access CHSP?

You may be eligible for CHSP if you are:

  • Aged 65 years or over or 50 years or older if you are Aboriginal or a Torres Strait Islander
  • In need of low-level assistance to live independently.

To take your first step towards support, call My Aged Care on 1300 200 422. You'll be connected with an ACAS assessor who will assess your eligibility for Government support at home.

Once you have undertaken the eligibilty assessment, the team will determine your care needs and open your access to CHSP services.

Note: Some CHSP programs may not be available to people on a Home Care Package. Please contact Uniting to check what is available to support you.

What will it cost?

Your home support is subsided by the Government, with a small personal contribution from you. Please speak to our team to discuss the cost to you.
