What is the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP)?
Helps older people living in the community maintain their independence by providing basic entry level support services that take into account individual strengths, needs and preferences. The services promote wellness and build on any strengths and abilities. Entry level support can be provided on a short term (ie, after leaving hospital) or an ongoing basis.
This program also supports carers by providing planned respite services for eligible older people to allow carers to take a break.
