Home Care Packages

Your Home Care Package will support you to live a meaningful life and maintain your independence.

Together, you and a St Carthage’s support planner will discuss your goals and support needs and design a Home Care Package just for you.

Once you have decided on your goals, your package can include anything from the ordinary such as shopping and cleaning, to the extraordinary such as sky diving and motorbike riding. The options are almost endless and the choice is yours.

Commonwealth Home Support Program

Through the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP), you can access support that will enable you to stay in your home longer. The CHSP is entry-level for older people and provides access to services, such as domestic assistance, personal care and social support, to enable you continue to live your life independently.

Support for you

Sometimes it is only one or two things that you may need a hand with so you can stay in your home. It may be support like getting dressed, bathing, washing your hair and getting in and out of bed.

To start the process of receiving care in your home, contact My Aged Care and they will organise to get an assessment of your level of care.

When you receive your letter contact St Carthage’s Community Care to let them know:

  • The assessment decision
  • The level of package you have been approved for
  • The reasons and evidence supporting the decision.

Call St Carthage’s Community Care on 02 6620 0000 if you need any assistance.
