Aged Care Services
Commonwealth Home Support Program
The Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) helps you stay independent and in your home and community for longer.
If you want to stay in your own home, but need some help with daily tasks, or require entry-level care, the Commonwealth Home Support Program may be able to help.
For most people, living independently in your own home as you get older is what you want. However, sometimes you may need support with some daily tasks that you are no longer managing as well on your own. For example, you might need someone to help you change a light globe, a tap washer, assistance with light gardening, minor home modifications or assistance with meals.
As you get older your own home may need to be modified for you to be able to stay home – these modifications are carried out by qualified tradespeople and are designed with the aim of meeting your changing needs.
