Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP)

How do you know if a Home Care Service is right for you?

Ask yourself:

- Are you an older person needing some help to remain living in your own home?

-  Do you struggle with some aspects of living at home but can still manage most of the time?

- Do you think you may have to go into an aged care home before you are ready to because you cannot get some help at home?

- Are you a younger person with dementia, a disability or special care needs that are not being met through specialist service?

If you answer “Yes” to any of these questions then a Home Care Service may be what you are looking for.

IAWA services include:

Domestic Assistance – Services that support you with general housework.

Social Support – Activities that can help you maintain an active social life.

Specialized Social Support – Information regarding various services for Vision, Hearing, Continence and Advocacy.

Contact the Granite Belt Ethnic Health Liaison Officer for details.

Community Visitor Scheme (CVS)

The Community Visitor Scheme (CVS) is an Australian Government funded program by way of grants provided to approved community-based organisations participating in the scheme. These organisations administer the CVS in a particular geographic area.

The objective of the Community Visitor Scheme is to provide one on one volunteer visitor to recipients of Australian Government home care packages who are socially isolated and whose quality of life would be improved by friendship and companionship.

A Volunteer visitor is matched with a recipient of a home care package and the Volunteer must visit at least once a fortnight, except when they are sick or are on holidays, or unable to visit due to other circumstances. The visit is to provide companionship and friendship and to provide a social interest.

If you are interested in visiting a recipient of a home care package in their home or a residential aged care facility in Stanthorpe to register their interest by phoning 07 4681 3838.
