Commomwealth Home Support Programme
Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP)
Funded by the Australian Government, the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) provides a range of entry-level aged care services for older people who need assistance to keep living independently at home and in their community.
If you are generally able to manage but just need some help with daily tasks to continue living at home, CHSP services may be right for you.
These services might also be suitable if you have had a setback and need support for just a short period of time to help you get back on your feet.
The aim of the program is to help older people live as independently as possible – with a focus on working with you, rather than doing for you. It is about building on your strengths and abilities to help you remain living independently and safely at home.
The program is for peoples aged 65 years and over (50 years and over for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people).
There are 5 steps in the pathway to accessing CHSP services:
- Call My Aged Care (1800 200 422 or go to myagedcare.gov.au).
- Have a home support assessment.
- Agree on a home support plan.
- Select service providers and work out your fees.
- Manage your services.
