Community Options CHSP Services

The services Community Options provides under the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) are listed below:

Post Hospital Support Program

The Post Hospital Support Program provides support to older people, following discharge from hospital, for up to eight weeks. Services offered under the program include personal care, social support, domestic assistance and home modifications.

Domestic Assistance Service

The Domestic Assistance Service is a long-term program for older people, with low level support requirements. The program provides on-going domestic assistance services to those people who only require basic house cleaning services to continue living independently in their homes.


COPS is a long-term program that provides support to older people and people with disabilities with higher level, more complex support requirements. Through this program, Community Options assists individuals and families in identifying their needs and service options available to them in the community. The program may provide a range of in-home support services in consultation with the person and their family including social support and personal care. The program also provides service co-ordination and service monitoring as required.

Flexible Respite Program

The Flexible Respite Program provides short- to medium-term respite care community services to carers of older people and people with disabilities who have complex support needs that are unable to be met by mainstream services. Intensive coordination services are also available through this program.
