Do you need nursing care at home?
If you are wondering if it is time for supported care at home for yourself or a loved one, there is help available.
While many people continue to care for family in their homes, there are specialist support services available through government subsidised schemes and private services to help care for those most in need.
Research shows that of the 1.2m Australians who received aged care services, only 22% of those aged 65 and over access some form of support or care at home and 71% live at home without accessing government-subsidised aged care services*.
There is help available
The Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) helps senior Australians access entry-level support services to live independently and safely at home. CHSP is accessed through My Aged Care, the hub of information for all Australian Government Aged Care Services.
There are many services available through this program including nursing, personal care, meals and allied health services.
