The Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) funds experienced carers to come to your home and provide personal hygiene and domestic assistance services so you can live independently.
Wellways is contracted to provide these services in both ACT and the Darling Downs of Queensland. For many years, the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) was known as Home and Community Care (HACC).
Funding guidelines require, whenever possible, the client to make a co-contribution to the cost of the service (usually around $7.50) but this can be waived in cases of hardship. Any money collected is put back into providing more services.
Referrals can be made to the CHSP from GPs, hospitals and community agencies.
