Commonwealth Home Support Programme
Helping you live the life you want
If you want to stay in your own home, but would benefit from a little extra support with cleaning and preparing meals, gardening, showering, or with transport to attend appointments or go shopping, the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) may be for you.
You can choose from a set menu of services, only paying for the services you use and can dip in and out of the programme as you need things.
With more than 25 years of experience helping people live at home independently, we know how important that is. So the better we know your preferences and priorities – the better we can support you.
What do CHSP services cost?
KinCare’s CHSP services are subsidised by the Australian Government. The subsidy programme does not necessarily fund the full cost of the service. So each person may pay a small contribution.
Your KinCare Customer Care Manager will discuss the cost of the service at your initial consultation, before services start. Payment can be made by direct debit, EFT, cheque or credit card. Special consideration is available to people experiencing financial difficulty.
How to arrange a CHSP service
Follow the three simple steps below. Once you’re assessed as eligible, we’ll match our services to suit your needs.
