As people age, they often need some assistance to continue to live independently, safely and confidently in their homes. Flexi Care is one of the organisations which has been authorised to provide services to support older people through CHSP.
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 care anagers 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 support provided is sufficient and appropriate.
