We understand that keeping your home just the way you like it is important.

Whether you’d like to share the load in the garden, have some assistance with vacuuming, or need a handyperson to help out with some repairs, we can connect you with services to keep things running smoothly in and around your property and garden.

The City of Burnside Home Support Program can also arrange the installation of a range of minor home modifications including grab rails to keep you safe and help you to maintain your independence.

Who is eligible?

The City of Burnside Home Support Program home and property services are funded by the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP). Eligibility for CHSP funded services is assessed on your support needs and age. To be eligible for services, you must be aged 65 years or older or 50 years or older if you are an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person.

To access services you will need to contact My Aged Care on 1800 200 422. My Aged Care will assess which types of services you are eligible for and provide you with approvals for these services. Once you have the approvals you can then choose the City of Burnside as your provider.
