    Assistance with Care and Housing

    The Assistance with Care and Housing Programme helps older people find secure, sustainable and affordable housing, and link with support services.

     

    The Assistance with Care and Housing Programme is available to people over the age of 50 years, from all backgrounds, who are on a low income and are homeless, or may be at risk of becoming homeless from not having secure accommodation.

    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.

    Home Care Packages

    Resthaven supports older people who require assistance to remain at home through individually tailored support services called ‘Home Care Packages’.

     

    Services are delivered using a Consumer Directed Care (CDC) approach, which gives the older person choice and flexibility in the way their care and support is provided.
