Commonwealth Home Support Programme

Getting older happens – and that’s okay! Your age doesn’t mean you have to give up what you love.

Council can support you, or the person you care for, feel safe and comfortable at home and in the community. To access these services, you need to be approved and assessed as eligible for the Commonwealth Home Support Programme. This process is handled by My Aged Care.
