The Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) is an entry level aged care service

CHSP provides basic aged care funding that can help you live confidently and independently at home. You may be eligible for CHSP if you’re 65 years or over, or 50 years or over if you’re an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, and you:

  • need help to complete everyday activities
  • have special needs, an illness or dementia
  • need short-term support to help you regain your health and independence.

Our services range from helping you get back on your feet, improving your strength and mobility, support with showering, cleaning, or getting out and about.
