What is geat2GO?

geat2GO is an initiative by the Australian government that enables seniors to access equipment to support independent living using their Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) funding.

Who is eligible for CHSP funding?

CHSP funding is typically for seniors who live independently in their own home and require assistance with daily activities. CHSP funding is often used as interim funding for those awaiting a Home Care Package. 

To register for CHSP funding, you must meet specific eligibility criteria, such as age, health and mobility needs. Applicants are assessed to determine their eligibility for equipment and services.
