Commonwealth Home Support Programme

Home / Home Care / Commonwealth Home Support Programme

Commonwealth Home Support Programme, known as CHSP, is for those who only need simple services such as domestic help or transport.

There is a range of services to support you to live at home whilst enhancing wellness and independence. If you are caring for someone at home, there are also services available for you, which provide education, support and a well deserved break.

Explore the tabs to see a service menu and to read about eligibility and fees. Or call Leonie now on 1300 26 26 26 to discuss your individual requirements.


To find out if you are eligible for Commonwealth Home Support Programme services, contact us and we will help you.

Alternatively, you can talk to the Commonwealth Respite and Carelink Centre on 1800 200 422.

When you know what services you are eligible to receive, we can arrange for these to be delivered to you. We operate across the Perth metro area and in Kalgoorlie-Boulder.

We can also arrange top-up services if you want more than the services available to you under subsidised care.

Amana Living Kites Program - DAY TRIPS FOR SENIORS

We know that continuing with your hobbies, learning new ones and socialising with friends are important to you, and so we have developed the CHSP-funded Kites program.

Kites enables you to get out and enjoy life, AND have the peace of mind that assistance is there if you need it.

We match you with others of similar age and interests for day trips to suit your budget.  Popular destinations include Hillarys, Fremantle, Toodyay, the Swan Valley, Araluen and Kings Park.

What is home care?

Home care is the name for a range of care and services that help you, or the person you care for, to continue living at home for as long as possible. Services range from weekly help around the house to a daily visit to provide nursing or personal care.

How much does it cost?

If you access Government-subsidised services, the cost is the same, whatever services you choose. This will be worked out according to your individual circumstances. Any unspent funds accumulate for you to use later on.

How do I know what I’m eligible for?

Depending on your needs and preferences, you may be eligible for Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) or Packaged Care. We can help you find out what you are eligible for. We can also arrange top-up services if you want more than the services available to you under subsidised care. 

Why would I go to Amana Living for my home care services?

As your needs change, the services you receive at home from Amana Living can also change. We will work with you to determine the best combination of services for you and the most cost-effective way to access those services. We will make sure they are delivered at the right time by skilled and friendly staff.

Where does Amana Living home care operate?

We operate across the Perth metro area and in Kalgoorlie-Boulder.
