As a not-for-profit organisation, our focus is to offer you high quality, reliable care provided by a team of support staff who are committed to working in their own local community.
Christian Homes Tasmania (CHT) provide specialised services to help you stay safe and independent in your own home. We recognise that looking after yourself and others can become difficult, especially with the many tasks that require attention around the home and keeping yourself healthy too. This is when CHT Home Care can provide the additional help and support you may need.
The Home Care team can assist you with a range of care services from minimal assistance such as extra help with household tasks, meals, assistance with personal care and shopping, through to more complex care support needs from our Nursing and Allied Health staff.
CHT wishes for you to have maximum funds available in your package to cover the services and products you require and we will work with you and/or your representative to ensure that you can get the most out of your funds.
We focus on supporting your health, well-being and independence by providing you services from basic gardening, domestic assistance, personal care and transport to and from appointments and shopping through to the more complex support services such as nursing and allied health. CHT will retain a small amount from your monthly government subsidy to deliver your care package to cover:
- Package management is the ongoing administration and organisational activities associated with ensuring the smooth delivery and management of your package such as rostering, generating accounts and managing staff.
- Care Management is for the management of your care including writing support plans and regular reviews by the Registered Nurse.
CHT also pays Support Workers for the time it takes them to travel between clients, plus the kilometres travelled. Therefore we will charge the home care package for these travel costs as well.
If you are accessing Government funded aged care services for the first time, you will need to be registered and assessed to determine your level of care needs.
Contact My Aged Care via the contact centre or visit their website via the links below.
If you need assistance with this registration, one of our office or management staff can support you and explain the eligibility criteria and the Australian government assessment processes.
"We’re just really pleased that we’re here."
John & 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.
"It's a magic environment"
Pat (Retirement Village Resident)
We had thirty years on acreage. I'm visually impaired and it was becoming obvious that my husband was going to have to do everything. We've been here almost five years. It's quiet, the neighbours are wonderful. We can sit and have happy hour and watch the sunset on the mountain. We keep the garden and grow a few veggies and out ornamental trees - but we don't have to cut the grass! There are always people around if you need help. It's just a magic environment. I think we're lucky that we choose the best.
