How Much Does It Cost?

It’s important to consider the total value of your Home Care services. Home Nursing Group has some of the lowest administration costs in the industry, and we don’t charge exit fees. With Home Nursing group, you can be assured there are no hidden charges.

Most importantly, we always provide exceptional care in your home.

We are experts in navigating the Australian Government funding for Aged Care and can help you through this process. Talk with our trained staff today about your requirements.

Home Nursing Group offers three main funding options for you:

Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP)
Home Care Packages (HCP)
Privately Funded Clients
Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP)

The Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) provides low-level support services for older people to stay at home and be more independent in the community.

CHSP services are provided to people with low to moderate Home Care needs under a variety of different services such as Personal Care, Domestic Assistance, Home Maintenance and Social Support.

Some CHSP services are also available on a higher-intensity basis for a short period (for example, to help you get back on your feet after a stay in hospital).

To be eligible for CHSP, the Australian Government requires you to undertake a free assessment by the Regional Assessment Service (RAS). The MyAgedCare portal is the access point, and we can help you with all the details.

CHSP services are subsidised by the Australian Government. In addition, it is Government policy that you contribute a modest amount towards the cost of your care.

For specific prices, please call the friendly Home Nursing Group Intake Team. They can help with all the details.

Home Care Packages (HCP)

Home Care Packages are also subsidised by the Australian Government and are available for people over 65 (over 55 for people from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities), who need higher-level support to live at home.

Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) conduct assessments for Home Care Packages (HCP) and determine the appropriate level. We can assist you with a referral to an ACAT in your area.

Once you are approved and allocated a package, you are ready to choose your individual service choices. Home Nursing Group can walk you through a range of care options and help you set goals and develop a Care Plan designed for you and your needs.

The Australian Government provides a daily subsidy per package to supply and coordinate care services. In addition, you will be asked to contribute towards the cost of your care. The amount of your contribution is determined by Centrelink in view of your financial status.

Please contact us to discuss your interest in a Home Care Package. We will be pleased to provide further details and information.

Privately Funded Clients

Home Nursing Group also offers the flexibility being a self-funded client. This can be used to add extra services, or as interim support while waiting for Government support.

For some people, private services as a self-funded client may be preferable — for example, while you wait to receive a Home Care Package or if you require services on top of the Commonwealth Home Support Programme.

Please call the friendly Home Nursing Group Intake Team to discuss your requirements. We will be pleased to provide further details and information.
