“I’m really impressed with your service. Thoughtful and caring staff – always on time. Very hardworking and thorough. Superb care and kindness!” (Maggie – Home Care Recipient)
Community Services #1 offers a variety of services to support individuals aged 65 years or over in our community. These services can be accessed through the Commonwealth Home Support Programme or a Home Care Package. We have designed a unique program that gives our valued clients high quality care at the best possible price.
Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP)
For older people that prefer to stay independent in their own home, the Commonwealth Home Support Program can provide entry level support services such as cleaning, washing clothes, showering, meals and basic home maintenance tasks.. We also offer social support groups, transport and assistance with housing.
Our transport services, which consist of a fleet of six cars, two 12 seat vans, and a 22 seat bus— serve residents throughout Canberra with over 9800 trips conducted this year. The bus is equipped with a hydraulic ramp able to support bariatric clients or those with large scooters.
