he Minister for Aged Care and Senior Australians, Richard Colbeck has announced extra funding of $150 million over the next three years for Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) providers of services in areas where there’s high demand.

Senator Colbeck said the funding will be delivered to around 18,000 older Australians – that’s about $2,777 per person per year.

The announcement comes as the latest home care package data report reveals the waiting list has dropped slightly but 120,000 people are still waiting for a package (the next story).
