Silver Chain Aged Care Services

Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP)

CHSP is an innovative service that aims to improve your overall health and independence if you are over 65 years of age.

Activities include:

  • Learning new ways of approaching personal and daily activities that have become more difficult, so that you can manage your own activities without the need for assistance.
  • Using equipment that can assist with personal care and day to day activities.
  • Providing a home exercise program that helps to improve strength, balance and increases overall physical activity levels.
  • Looking into community based activities that suit your individual interests.

Nursing

Services include general nursing care and depending on your location and availability, we can also offer monitoring of medication and rehabilitation to specialised procedures such as hospital in the home programs, intravenous therapy, wound care, stomal therapy and the managing of continence and diabetes.

Our nurses can access expert advice and support from clinical nurse consultants who are nurses that specialise in particular areas such as wound care, infection control, gerontology, acute care and continence.

Not all Silver Chain services are available in all areas. For further information please contact our Customer Centre on (08) 9242 0242 or country callers on 1300 650 803 (for the cost of a local call).  

Allied Health

Silver Chain's occupational therapy, physiotherapy, and podiatry care delivers optimum standards of care in the area of expertise that meets the needs of clients to maintain their independence and links to their community.

Physiotherapy and podiatry aim to minimise pain and discomfort if you are elderly or have a disability. The physiotherapist or podiatrist will make an assessment and develop an individual care plan to suit your individual needs. Ongoing treatment is carried out in the home at convenient times to you. Physiotherapy is available in the home to clients in the Perth metropolitan area if attending an appointment outside their home would cause symptoms to become worse. Podiatry is available in Perth's inner suburbs for clients who are housebound and are unable to travel outside of their home.
