Help to stay healthy at home
We all know getting older is a normal part of life, but we don’t have to feel old.
Whether you live at home with family or on your own, a little extra support is sometimes all that is needed to keep on doing everyday activities.
How healthy@home can help
Healthy@home is a consortium of 19 leading organisations who are experienced in supporting people with diverse needs, characteristics and life experiences.
Our consortium includes community aged care service providers, government and non-government agencies, peak bodies and advocacy groups.
Our members are committed to providing high quality community aged care services in the Brisbane North and Caboolture regions of Queensland.
Commonwealth Home Support Program
Healthy@home delivers Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) services. This is a government-funded program that supports older people who are still managing well at home, but could benefit from some extra help to continue living independently in the community.
CHSP helps people aged 65 years and over (or aged 50 years and over for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people) to enhance their independence and avoid or delay entry into residential aged care.

Helping You to Stay Healthy and Independent at Home
As we get older, it is good to know there are home support services available in the community that can help you to carry on living an independent life in your own home. Healthy@home is a consortium of 19 non-profit, community aged care organisations working together in Brisbane North to deliver affordable, flexible and personalised home support services to help you maximise your independence.
What’s different about us?
At healthy@home, our goal is to deliver high quality community-based and in-home support services to achieve the best possible quality of life for our clients and, because we’re not-for-profit, we can reinvest back into supporting better care in our community.
Each community aged care service provider in our consortium is local to Brisbane North or Caboolture, Queensland, and accredited under the Australian Quality Aged Care Standards. We also have strong links with general practices, hospitals and other healthcare services.
We have a workforce of more than 1,000 clinical and non-clinical support staff, dedicated to providing the home support services you need to live well. We can provide services to multicultural and Indigenous communities and have frontline staff who can speak many languages.
We also have the benefit of consumer advocacy groups, government and industry peak body representation on our management committee. This ensures service design is more responsive to consumer need and gives us a stronger voice on policy matters.
Home Support Services in Brisbane North, Queensland
We all know getting older is a normal part of life, but we don’t have to feel old. Whether you live at home with family or on your own, sometimes a little extra support is all that is needed to get you back to doing everyday activities.
The Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) is a government-funded program for older people who need some extra help around the home to maintain their independence. The CHSP includes a range of community aged care services to support people aged 65 years and over, or 50 years and over for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Available home support services can include household jobs, or help with daily tasks, such as cleaning, shopping, meal preparation and laundry. At other times, you might need community transport or modifications to improve safety around the home. We can also help you with personal care, healthcare and respite care.
