CHSP (formally HACC) provides a flexible, responsive service that encourages and empowers the client to maintain control over their lives and to continue living in their own homes.
How does CHSP work?
Clients will contact “My Aged Care” who will assess and refer to Service Providers such as Flexi Care Inc.
Flexi Care Inc.’s case managers will talk to each client and/or their carer to create a goal orientated care plan, that has a wellness and reablement approach, to enable and assist the client to remain living in their own home as long as possible.
Services are monitored and reviewed regularly to ensure the care provided is appropriate to meet the needs of the client.
Who can use CHSP?
This program provides general home care services for Commonwealth Home Support (CHSP) eligible people who are over 65 (50 years and over for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people).
Frail older people and their carers can access the service to assist them to live in their own home independently.
Our services cover the CHSP geographical catchment area of Brisbane South.

Can everyone be helped using CHSP?

Clients who need only a little support may already be receiving services which meet all their needs.
