How to access services
People aged over 65 years (over 50 years for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people)
After you are assessed, our Aged and Disability Support Services team can provide services. A subsidy may be provided by the Australian Government through the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP).
How much does it cost?
Clients contribute towards the cost of government subsidised services. We will talk to you about any costs before we start providing services. Our Aged and Disability Support Services Fee Guidelines (149.93 KB) can provide a guide to you.
