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

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.
