Woden Community Service is funded under the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) to provide a suite of entry-level aged care services for eligible people. 

Our home support services can assist you to remain living at home and in your community. We will work in partnership with you to meet your changing needs and to maintain your independence. 

These services are: 

  • Domestic assistance 
  • Personal care 
  • Shopping support 
  • Social support – individual

We may also be able to provide home support services for a fee, direct to individuals or under brokerage arrangements for agencies. Please contact WCS Aged Care Intake on (02) 6181 2819 or agedcareservices@wcs.org.au for more information.

Who can access home support?

To be eligible for services under CHSP, you must:

  • be aged 65 years or older, or 50 years or older for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people 
  • require low-level, basic services 
  • not be receiving support through the National Disability Insurance Scheme or a Home Care package. 

How much does it cost?

Service users are required to pay a contribution towards the cost of services they receive from WCS for Home Support services under CHSP. We recognise that sometimes circumstances may make it difficult to pay some or all of the contributions for service and we will always look at individual situations.
