Auscare’s Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) is available for older Australians who require entry-level support services to live independently and safely at home.
Funded by the Australian Government, CHSP services work with you to maintain your independence rather than doing things for you, supporting a more independent and connected life.
Auscare’s home modifications services will require a referral from Commonwealth Home Support Programme. This program can improve your independence and confidence with your activities of daily living, and increase your safety and security in your home.
Auscare’s experienced allied health teams of, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants, can assist you to improve your mobility and wellbeing, including recommendations for assistive technology.
Auscare Cottage Respite service is funded by the Community Home Support Program offering a homelike, friendly and cheerful atmosphere with flexible respite options for family carers looking after a loved one. The wellbeing of carers is important and by offering short breaks can assist in your caring role. While your loved one can enjoy activities in a safe and caring environment, while you take some time out. Depending on your needs our options may include day, evening, overnight or 24-hour care.
Social Support Group operates in various locations in Metropolitan Perth, providing social group outings and/or centre based activities to our older Australians. These activities are designed to develop, maintain or support social connections.
For those who would like to go on a day adventure, we provide the transport. All you need is to bring lunch or you can choose a meal to enjoy. We can arrange a local restaurant or cafe, catch a movie or even try something new with the safety and support of our team
