Aged and Disability Services
We offer a range of services that enhance and maintain the abilities and independence of eligible individuals.
Services are available for frail older people, people with a disability and their carers. Priority is given to those who are unable to continue living independently without support.
This includes a person centred approach designed to assist individuals to maintain their confidence, stay active and healthy and to strengthen their capacity to adapt to changing life circumstances.
An assessment takes place, where possible in the client’s home, and assists people to explore a range of ways to live independently and remain active members of their community.
Assistance can be either short or long term depending on the assessed needs of individual.
The Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) is the entry level for Australia's aged care system for people aged 65 years and over (or 50 years and over for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people) who need assistance to keep them living independently at home and in their community.
