Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP)

The CHSP provides small amounts of entry-level support to assist older people. Services may be short-term, intermittent or ongoing.

This program places a strong focus on activities that support independence and social connection.

The Commonwealth Home Support Program provides services that give a little bit of extra assistance around the home, supporting you to remain independent and to enjoy life your way.
It enables you to get basic support with services such as house cleaning, social support, and personal care. There are also home maintenance services available that can help with tasks around the home so that you can feel safe in your environment.

With 30 years of experience, we believe that we are experts in our field by providing services that meet the needs of individuals, ensuring that you have the choice, flexibility and support that you need to live the lifestyle that they enjoy.

The Commonwealth Home Support Program is a government subsidised program for eligible persons who are over 65 or over 50 if you are of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent.
