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 since 1988!
We are very proud of the fact that we are Tasmanian owned and operated and we believe this has gone a long way in helping us understand the needs of our fellow Tasmanians.
CBS provides a wide range of support services across the state of Tasmania to people who are frail aged and people living with disability.
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.
CBS wants to help you to live the life you choose, in the place you love and there are a number of ways in which this could occur. Please visit our Aged Care Support pages for more information, or simply contact us with your query. Our Aged Care services team is standing by, ready to help you.
‘People with disability’ 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.
You do not need to provide proof of a formal diagnosis to be supported by Community Based Support. However, you might like to know that Community Based Support can help you to be in control of the life you choose to lead and can work with you to achieve your life goals.

Carers are people who spend time looking after a family member, a friend or a neighbor on an ongoing basis, without being paid for it. Carers include people who are caring for someone who is frail and/or aged; or a person living with a disability; or has a chronic or terminal illness; or who needs support on an ongoing basis due to a medical condition.
Self funded support refers to support which is purchased privately. This support can be purchased by anyone over the age of 18 and is delivered within the state of Tasmania.
Whether you are ineligible for government assistance, need additional services or would just like to make your own arrangements for personalised care, all CBS services are available to you.
Please contact us to discuss your options.
