Home Care Packages

Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) services provide entry level supports, whereas Home Care Packages (HCP) provide a higher level of ongoing support in the aged care system. The HCP program tailors services to help older people with more complex needs to continue living independently at home. 

Before transitioning from CHSP to HCP talk to your Meals on Wheels NSW service as to how you can continue to purchase meals through your package
