The Commonwealth Support Programme (CHSP) is another government subsidy seperate from the Home Care Package. Often older Australians will be allocated CHSP services prior to being assigned their Home Care Package.
CHSP offers older Australians specific services at a subsidised rate to give them extra support to continue living at home.
It is generally for consumers that need a little bit of support in the interim to needing a Home Care Package.
For example, you may be allocated gardening once a fortnight for $10 an hour.
