Supporting you with Home Care
CHT provide specialised Community and Home Care support services to help you stay safe and independent in your own home. The Community Care team can assist you with a range of home and community care services from minimal assistance such as extra help with personal care, household tasks, meals and shopping, through to more complex care support needs from our Nursing and Allied Health staff.
Independent Living Units
Simplify your lifestyle in the stunning Channel country of Southern Tasmania or the Eastern Shore of Hobart. Leave the gardening and property maintenance to us, and get on with doing more of what you love. With one, two and three-bedroom units available, our Independent Living Units offer a convenient and secure way of life for retired people.
Short & Longterm Respite Care

"The houses are too good to be called flats – I prefer to use the word “chalet”."
John (Retirement Village Resident)
They’re a good size, and well equipped. We feel very secure here, we sleep with the front door open and just the safety door locked on hot nights. It’s a very economical form of accommodation. The service is good, good neighbours and it’s well lit up at night. It’s an advantage to be adjacent to the residential hostels too. There are lots of activities going on there and we’re welcome to join in. I think it follows to say that we both love living here.
“The staff are really lovely… They’re all caring, they’re all so friendly and nice.”
Joan (Hawthorn Village Resident)
When you’ve been out all day, it’s so nice to come back to the room and be cosy. The staff are really lovely. I think they’re hand-picked. They’re all caring, they’re all so friendly and nice. If you’re not well, they’re just there to help you. They get to know your family and my daughter comes in with the Labrador sometimes and they’ve got to know the dog too. I’ve got a friend coming for lunch tomorrow, and she can join lunch for five dollars. I couldn’t take her for a coffee for that!
“They can’t be helpful enough here, all the staff are kind and friendly.”
Jennie (Snug Village Resident)
When the doctor said that I couldn’t have any stronger medication at home, I decided to move in to Snug Village. It’s all lovely, the food, the different kinds of entertainment and the accommodation. They can’t be helpful enough here, all the staff are kind and friendly.
“We’re just really pleased that we’re here!”
Ellie (Retirement Village Resident)
I thought retirement villages were the pits, that’s until I met John, who already lived here. I was surprised. It’s so spacious and well appointed. I’m a member of the auxiliary and we often say to each other “This is a retirement village, but we’re never home!” because we’re in community activities. John goes to the gym, I volunteer as a gardener. It’s nice to be neighbourly without invading people’s privacy. It’s nice when we go away, knowing that our neighbours have an eye on the place. We’re just really pleased that we’re here
“You’re sort of like a family, you’re not really aware of it, but you actually are.”
Joan (Hawthorn Village Resident)
It’s another stage in life, you’ve got to turn the page. I’ve always had my own home and been independent, but the doctor said I needed more care to stay safe. This is where I chose and I’m happy here. You make friends and the food is very nice – that’s important! We go out a lot, out for drives down to the Huon, and go for lunch, which is lovely. I tell people it’s really nice, if you’re lucky enough to get in here. You get to know every resident.
