The Commonwealth Home Support Programme

What is the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP)?

The CHSP, formerly known as HACC or Home and Community Care, is a Commonwealth Government subsidy that supports older people who are mostly but not completely, able to live and cope on their own. It covers what is referred to as ‘entry-level services’ which can range from cleaning your house once a month to helping you out in the garden. If this sounds like what you are looking for, you may be eligible.
