FAQs.

We’ve put together a list of frequently asked questions to guide you through the home care journey. We know it can be confusing, but we hope this helps to explain some of the most commonly confusing topics.

The cost of respite support varies depending on whether you’re accessing it through the Home Care Package (HCP) or the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP). With a Home Care Package, costs will be covered by your funding as long as the service is included in your Care Plan. Under the Commonwealth Home Support Programme, you can enjoy subsidised respite care but are still required to pay for the service. If you choose to receive residential respite, there are a set number of subsidised days you can receive in a financial year.

Both scenarios aim to make respite care more affordable, but the exact cost can depend on individual circumstances and the type of care needed.

For precise details and eligibility, it’s best to consult directly with service providers or through official government resources.
