Mosman Community Care
Mosman Council's Community Care provides a range of services for older adults, people living with disabilities and their carers living in Mosman and neighbouring areas of Cremorne and Neutral Bay. Some of our programs are funded through the Commonwealth Home Support Program. CHSP is a government initiative subsidising services to older adults needing low-level assistance to remain living independently in their own home. Mosman Council offers Meals, Transport and Social Support.
To be eligible for these services, you must be registered with My Aged Care and be aged:
- 65 years or older (50 years or older for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people), or
- 50 years or older (45 years or older for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people), on a low income and homeless, or at risk of being homeless.
If you need assistance registering with My Aged Care call the friendly Care Team on 9978 4128 to book an appointment to come into the Centre.
For residents over 55, we also offer a number of interesting activities at the Mosman Square Seniors’ Centre. The centre is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm and is located at the Civic Centre, Mosman Square.
To see upcoming seniors’ events in the Mosman area, visit the Mosman Events website or download the current activities schedule.
