Commonwealth Home Support Program
Kalano Community Association offers home and community care to provide greater opportunities for the elderly in the Katherine area that wish to live independently in their own homes and communities for as long as possible. CHSP primarily serves people aged 65 years and over or 50 years and over for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Our team assists those that require help with light housework, Meals on Wheels (MOW), accessing their community or attending appointments to ensure they maintain an independent and fulfilling life.
Kalano’s CHSP partners with the Red Cross to provide nursing, accommodation, activities, meals and supervise medications for the elderly that require extra support.
