As you get older, having a bit of extra help at home is important, so you can do the things you love.

Here are some of the services we offer:

  • Personal care

How can I fund my supports?

Home Care Packages

Home Care Packages (HCPs) are funding provided by the government for care services designed to help you remain living at home.

Eligibility for a HCP is determined by the Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS). This assessment is free and conducted in your home by experienced professionals. Government funding can greatly reduce your fees, however if personal circumstances allow, you may be asked to contribute to the cost of your care.

Commonwealth Home Support Programme

The Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) is a Government-subsidised program, providing services to help you stay living at home, independently, for longer.

If you’re waiting for a HCP or you’ve had a small health setback, CHSP is the first step to helping you get back on your feet.

Firstly, you may be eligible for CHSP if you are having trouble doing everyday activities without help and need support to live independently in the community. Other criteria is that you’re:

  • 65 years or older (50 years or older and identify as an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person).
  • 50 years or older (45 years or older for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people) and on a low income, homeless or at risk of being homeless.

Privately Funded Services

You can organise privately funded services directly and you won’t need a doctor’s referral.

You can choose to purchase from our range of services on a short or long-term basis. These services can be delivered when and where you need, from one to 24 hours or seven days a week. Plus, we’ll work with you and your budget.
