Aged Care

Commonwealth Home Support Programme


The Government allocates funding to the Commonwealth Home Support Programme; however, you may need to contribute towards the cost of your relevant package if it is deemed that you can afford to do so.

The fees payable for the relevant aged care service (and, your potential eligibility for Government subsidy) are discussed and then agreed upon between you and the aged care service provider; this process is completed prior to the receipt of your aged care services.

Please note: An income assessment isn’t required to access the Commonwealth Home Support Programme and the Government’s contributions to the cost of your aged care services will not affect your existing Age Pension entitlements.
