Currently, aged care funding is available under 3 different models:

  1. Commonwealth home support programme (CHSP)

  2. Home support packages (HSP)

  3. Private funding.

Eligible Australians may receive support under the first two funding models to receive help at home, short term care, or care in aged care homes.
