Entry Level Support Through Commonwealth Assistance

BallyCara HomeCare is subsidised by the Commonwealth Government to provide entry level support services through the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP). The Program is provided to people who require assistance to keep living independently in their own home and community.

BallyCara HomeCare delivers services under a Wellness approach. This means that you can expect us to work with your strengths and abilities rather than your limitations. We will identify what your individual goals are through our SONA® philosophy (Gaelic for Happiness) as everyone’s well-being matters to us. We will collaborate with you to create a plan and we will show integrity and be authentic in our interactions to build the relationships.

To be eligible for CHSP services you require an assessment by the Regional Assessment Service (RAS) which can be arranged by contacting My Aged Care on 1800 200 422.

HomeCare Services

BallyCara HomeCare Packages allow you to customise how you spend your assigned Government subsidy on support services and equipment that promote your independence and community living. We help you through the journey by listening and exploring with you, your background, needs and preferences to design the optimal utilisation of available funds. Our Sona® philosophy also challenges you to consider your preferred future and how BallyCara can assist you to prosper with real happiness.

There are four levels of home care packages. These four levels are designed as follows:

Level 1: Supports people with basic care needs
Level 2: Supports people with low-level care needs
Level 3: Supports people with intermediate care needs
Level 4: Supports people with high-level care needs

Depending on your approved level of HomeCare package; services, consumables and minor equipment purchases will be organised in alignment with your individual needs and goals.

Services and equipment that may be of assistance to help you remain independent and in your own home include but are not limited to:

  • Personal Care support
  • Assistance to maintain your home in a clean and safe manner
  • Nursing support by Registered Nurses
  • Wellness services to promote physical activity, mental stimulation and emotional wellbeing

BallyCara HomeCare also offers privately funded platforms of care and support personalised to suit your individual circumstances and requirements. Our BallyCara Private Services allow you the choice, control and flexibility to maintain your independence and preferred lifestyle. Unlike our BallyCara HomeCare Packages and Commonwealth Home Support Program, Private Services require no Government eligibility to receive this option of services in your home. Our BallyCara Private Services are personalised to your individual needs and requirements and can provide services for as long or as little as needed.

Our BallyCara Private Services can include but are not limited to:

  • Personal Care
  • Shopping
  • Housekeeping
  • Meal Preparation
  • Social Support
  • Allied Health Services

Private Services could also be an option for you if you are on the waiting list to receive a HomeCare Package and aren’t eligible to receive a Commonwealth Home Support Program Package. Our BallyCara staff are here to answer any questions you may have and to assist with setting up a personalised private service package that doesn’t require you to have an Aged Care Assessment.

Aged Care Quality Standards


On 1 July 2019, the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission began assessing and monitoring quality of care and services against the Aged Care Quality Standards.

The Aged Care Quality Standards ensure that organisations offering care at home meet certain standards in how they operate and care for people.


Our HomeCare Staff

BallyCara HomeCare staff are recruited for their commitment to providing a high level of service to individuals and for their special understanding of meeting the needs of our clients. BallyCara’s reliable and responsive staff hold relevant qualifications and must be cleared by a National Criminal History Record every 3 years.

Our staff engage in continuous education on best practice procedures and individual work practices are monitored to ensure a high level of independent living services. All staff employed by BallyCara HomeCare adhere to our Code of Conduct which specifies the highest standards of conduct and ethical behaviour in their performance of duties with and for clients of the service.

To ensure your services and continuity of care is consistent, BallyCara strives to make sure you consistently see familiar support staff. Your support staff will be informed of your individual needs, preferences and goals and will always support you in a respectful and sensitive manner. BallyCara’s restorative approach includes a wellness focus and aims to inspire healthy and happy living in your community and home.


Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a CHSP and Home Care Package?

The Commonwealth Home Support Program is designed for people who require a low level of assistance and support to maintain their independence and stay living in their own home. If people are finding their care needs and support requirements are increasing they can then be referred for a HomeCare Package by contacting My Aged Care or speaking with a BallyCara Support Advisor.

The CHSP provides subsidised support in a range of defined service types and BallyCara HomeCare is funded to provide the following in defined geographical locations, so please contact us to discuss further:

  • Social support – community access, health and wellbeing programs
  • Respite care to give carers a break
  • Social support groups – organised activities, support and lunch in small group settings
  • Personal care – hygiene assistance
  • Allied health – Exercise Physiology
  • Domestic assistance – general house cleaning to maintain your home
