Commonwealth Home Support Program

The Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) is an entry-level home help program for older people who need some help with daily tasks to live independently at home.  The aim of the CHSP is to help older people live as independently as possible — with a focus on working with you, rather than doing for you. 

You may be eligible for services under the Commonwealth Home Support Programme if you are:

The Australian Government subsidises a range of aged care services to keep client fees reasonable and affordable.  If you are eligible, you are expected to contribute to the cost of your care if you can afford to.  You do not need an income assessment to access CHSP services and your age pension will not be affected by your contributions to the cost of your services.
