Everybody needs a little help sometimes. If it’s getting harder to manage at home as you get older, it might be time to look for some extra care and support.
We’re the first to admit however that arranging aged care can be a challenge. From knowing where to start, what type of care and support you need and who pays for it, there are lots of questions to ask. But you’re not alone — we’re here to help you through the process.
A good place to start might be to explore the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP). It provides a range of aged care services for people who need assistance to live independently at home. If you need some help with daily tasks CHSP services may be right for you.
CatholicCare can provide entry level support to older people on a short-term or ongoing basis. We can also provide higher intensity services short-term. We are a provider under the CHSP program for the Central Coast region as well as for the Northern Sydney region, Hornsby and Ku-ring-gai area. We also provide respite services.
