Local support services
The City of Belmont offers access to a range of support services for senior residents.
Commonwealth Home Support Program
The Commonwealth Home Support Program could be suitable if someone you care about needs help with daily activities such as showering, shopping, home maintenance, preparing meals, centre-based activities, respite, transport and meal delivery services.
The program is federally-funded and available for people aged 65 years and over, or aged 50 and over for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The first step towards the Commonwealth Home Support Program is for the person to be assessed for eligibility. The assessment will take place in their own home to determine appropriate levels of care.
