Feds launch $29m trial to help elders maintain mobility and independence

The federal government is funding a $29.2 million, nationwide trial of a reablement model used in Western Australia and Victoria to help older people remain living in their own homes for as long as possible.

Five regional assessment service (RAS) organisations will be funded to assess clients applying for services under the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) to see if they can take advantage of specialised CHSP services such as greater access to basic aids, equipment and assistive technologies before being referred for ongoing CHSP services.
