Community Based Support, or “CBS” as we are more commonly known, is a not-for-profit organisation that has been supporting people to remain living independently at home for over 25 years! We are very proud of the fact that we are Tasmanian owned and operated and we believe this has gone a long way to helping us understand the needs of our fellow Tasmanians.
CBS provides a wide range of support services to people who are over the age of 65, people with disabilities and unpaid carers. To explain these a little better, we have outlined each of these groups below.
At CBS, when we talk about Aged Care Services, we mean anyone who is aged 65 years and over, or 50 years and over for people of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent, who are looking for support to help them to stay living independently at home.
People with disabilities refers to people who are aged 64 years and under, or 49 years and under for people of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent, who have a disability and are in receipt of a disability support pension through Centrelink. The person does not need to provide proof of a formal diagnosis to be supported by CBS. However, they might like to know that CBS can help them to be in control of the life they choose to lead and that CBS can work with them to achieve their life goals.
Carers are people who spend time looking after a family member, a friend or a neighbour on an ongoing basis, without being paid for it. Carers include people who are caring for someone who is frail and/or aged; or has a disability; or has a chronic or terminal illness; or who needs support on an ongoing basis due to a medical condition.
