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. To find out if you are eligible you need to register with My Aged Care by calling 1800 200 422. From here the My Aged Care contact centre may refer you for a home support assessment, where a Regional Assessment Service (RAS) assessor will contact you to arrange a face-to-face assessment in your home.
During your home support assessment, the RAS assessor will ask you about your day-to-day activities, your needs and your preferences, for example - what you can do well, what you need some help doing, and what you want to be able to do. You may wish to have a family member, friend or carer at the assessment to support you, or to speak on your behalf.
If your assessment shows you are eligible for services under the Commonwealth Home Support Program, then please contact us direct and we can help to put your services in place.
