    Commonwealth Home Support Programme – Pricing Schedule

    The Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) offers subsidised entry-level aged care support.

    The Commonwealth Home Support Programme promotes independence through physical and emotional well-being, social participation and access to the community. This is a ‘wellness approach.’ This program provides a basic level of support that may include assistance with personal care, showering and dressing, preparing meals, housework, laundry, shopping and transport.

     

    The choice of CHSP services is limited, and provided on an hourly basis. There is no income assessment to access the CHSP, and the age pension will not be affected by personal contributions to the cost of services. Services are limited, and should a person’s circumstances change, they may be assessed and approved for a higher level of care.

     

    The Commonwealth Home Support Programme also subsidises allied health services and self-management programs. Resthaven’s wellness centres offer individual and group support.

    With a Little Help… How family and friends can support a Carer

    This booklet is for the family and friends of a Carer: to help you support someone you know who is caring for someone else.

    Many Carers say that they sometimes experience a sense of isolation – that those around them, family and friends, can’t quite ‘get’ what it is that the Carer is going through.

     

    Carers we have spoken with said that they wished there was some information available to their family and friends that would help them understand and better support the Carer. Here you will find information and practical ideas to support a Carer in their important role.
