CHSP (Commonwealth Home Support Program) & HOMECARE
The Commonwealth Home Support (CHSP) program (previously HACC) provides support services to older people, people with a disability and their carers, to assist them to continue living independently at home. The services provided range from Centre based care through to Personal care and meals on wheels.
Our Home Care packages provide support for those with a greater care need that require more support than the CHSP service can offer. These services are on a consumer directed care basis which can be tailored to the recipient’s needs. The services can range from social support to Domestic assistance & transport.
The CHSP & Homecare program directs its services to those who have the greatest need for them and /or the greatest capacity to benefit from the services on offer.
It is a requirement of the Australian Government for providers of CHSP & Home Care to take part in quality reporting at least once every 3 years. Quality Reporting is the Australian Government’s process for encouraging community aged care providers to review, refine and continuously improve the quality of their service delivery. This is conducted by the Australian Aged Care Quality Agency. The Home Care service & HACC service passed all required standards and expected outcomes.
For detailed information see reports below.
Accessing the service
As with aged care a referral is required to meet all regulatory requirements in order to access the service. The following steps outline the referral process.
- A health professional, HACC coordinator, Aged Care coordinator or Family members would contact Yaandina about the concerns they have for their relative or client.
- An ACNA (Aged Care Network Australia) assessment will be done. In consultation with family and health professionals and a service or care plan would be designed.
- The plan would indicate the correct care provision needed, i.e. in-home services or residential aged care. If Homecare is seen to be needed over HACC services an ACAT (Aged Care Assessment Team) would be engaged
- The ACNA or ACAT assessor would advise the appropriate agency and the referral would be made.
