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.
