Home and community care
As we get older we appreciate a little extra help to stay independent in our own home. Karingal Green is a world-class connected aged care community from award-winning provider Hall & Prior.
We live and work in your community and are committed to supporting people to continue to live independently in their own home.
We offer a wide range of flexible programs and services and can tailor them to suit you.
Our programs include home care packages, wellness, residential or in-home respite, as well as other services which you can book through us at any time.
You might like to receive some help around your home, assistance with your meals, transport to your appointments, or assistance with personal care and clinical services.
You can trust our friendly team to support you when you need it the most.

Understanding Home Care Funding
In-home care and community support services can be funded by:
- Your ACAT approved Home Care Support Package (HCP)
- The Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP)
- Or you can pay for services privately if you wish
Home Care Package
If your ACAT assessment determines that you qualify for a Home Care Package (HCP) then depending upon your care needs you will receive a certain level of government funding to support your care in your home. You will then partner with an approved Home Care Service Provider to manage your package and facilitate the services provided to you.
Based on your goals your HCP funding can help you with day-to-day activities including:
- Providing services such as personal care, nutrition, hydration, meal preparation and diet
- Delivering support services like mobility and assistive technology, gardening and transport
- Managing clinical services including nursing and allied health.
The Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP)
Sometimes, the ACAT approval process can take time. If you need care and support services while on the wait list, you can apply for the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) through My Aged Care.
The CHSP helps you quickly access services such as domestic assistance, home maintenance, social support and respite care.
