Update on Aged Care Agreements: STRC, CHSP and Home Care

| Published by Solomon Miller, Anita Courtney

Russell Kennedy has been expanding our range of template aged care agreements.

Russell Kennedy has the following agreements available for purchase:

  • Home Care Agreement (incorporating the 27 February 2017 amendments)
  • CHSP Client Agreement
  • STRC Client Agreement – Home Care
  • STRC Client Agreement – Residential Care
  • Transition Care Agreement
  • Residential care agreements, which include provisions in relation to additional services to capture the effect of the 2 September 2016 announcement from the Department.

A number of these client agreements are also available through e-Tools.  Further information can be found at http://e-tools.com.au/.

In response to the “Uberisation” of home care, Russell Kennedy has also developed an agreement to use with clients who select their own care workers.

We also offer a range of brokered service provider agreements to ensure your suppliers deliver services to your clients in a manner consistent with your legal obligations whether CHSP, HCP or STRC. For larger, more sophisticated suppliers offering higher risk services, we recommend the use of a longer, more, detailed agreement. For smaller suppliers providing less complex services (eg gardeners) we recommend you use a short-form, 3-4 page supplier agreement.

Please contact Anita Courtney, Senior Associate on (03) 8602 7211, or Solomon Miller, Principal on (03) 9609 1650 if you would like more information.
