Funding and fees
Eldercare’s day therapy services can be provided through the government's Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP). This means your fees are subsidised to help make your support plan more affordable.
Your eligibility to receive CHSP-subsidised services through Eldercare’s day therapy centre is determined via My Aged Care. For more information, call 1800 200 422 or go to the My Aged Care website.
Some services can also be provided to clients on Home Care Packages, NDIS, GP Care Plans and Chronic Disease Management Plans and you have the option to pay for services privately.
