The Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) helps senior Australians access entry-level support services to live independently and safely at home.
CHSP works with you to maintain your independence rather than doing things for you.
Eligibility for this program is based on your support needs and age.
If you’re having trouble with everyday tasks and feel that a little support could improve your health and wellbeing, CHSP could be right for you.
To be eligible for this program, you must be aged:
|Meals and other food services||Pre-made meals and help with food preparation|
|Personal care||Help with showering, self-care, hygiene and grooming|
|Nursing||Help with medicines, telehealth support|
|Domestic assistance||Help with basic chores around the house|
|Home maintenance||Help with keeping your home and garden safe|
|Home modifications||Changes to your home to improve safety and access e.g. ramps and rails|
|Transport||Community transport or vouchers to attend appointments or activities|
|Social support||Contact and company with others e.g. social groups|
If you are eligible, you’re expected to contribute to the cost of your care. The cost depends on the type of support and the provider.
First you will need to be assessed. After that it will depend on the availability of service providers in your area to offer the service you need.
