Home Care, tailored to your needs!
If you, or someone you care about, would benefit from additional assistance then the Commonwealth Home Support Program may be the perfect solution.
The Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) is an initiative providing extra assistance around the home, including a wide range of services which can be tailored to your individual requirements. Support is available with services including house cleaning, home maintenance services, social support and personal care.
Some of the situations where you might like to consider CHSP include if you have experienced the following:
– noticed that memory has become a bit challenging
– reduced mobility
– been diagnosed with a medical condition
– family care arrangements have altered
CHSP can be modified and changed over time to ensure that you can receive the support you need whilst remaining independant!
Services available through CHSP
Are you eligible?
The Commonwealth Home Support Program is a government subsidised program for eligible persons and it is based on your age and the level of support you need. If you are finding everyday tasks difficult and feel that you need a little support, then the Commonwealth Home Support Program can provide it for you.
To be eligible for this program you must be 65 years or older (50 years for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people). Please also note that if you are on a low income, homeless or at risk of being homeless and aged 50 years or older (45 years or older for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people) please call the My Aged Care contact centre on 1800 200 422 to discuss your situation.
