Customers who are 65 years or older are eligible to be assessed for government subsidised services through My Aged Care, as are those who care for these people. Odyssey Builders is authorised to provide CHSP services across the state of NSW. Improvements are capped at a value of $10,000 in any single financial year.
If you think you may need these services to stay living independently at home, you can apply directly to My Aged Care. For further information telephone 1800 200 422 or visit the My Aged Care website. Please mention Odyssey Builders when making your enquiry. The My Aged Care team will assess your eligibility for the Commonwealth Home Support Program and then refer you to relevant providers. During your assessment, you can request that Odyssey Builders provide you with the services you need.
For customers needing urgent Home Modifications to return home from hospital, your Occupational Therapist can refer you directly to My Aged Care for urgent assistance.
Home Maintenance services are also coordinated through My Age Care.

The CHSP has a maximum cap on the subsidy for home modification of $10,000 per customer, per financial year. For all jobs, including those under $10,000 in value, the services provided through the Commonwealth Home Support Service are subsidised, but not free. Fees are determined on a sliding scale depending on customer income. Odyssey Builder staff will discuss this with you prior to providing you with any service.
