Alamein Neighbourhood & Learning currently provides two services via the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP).

They are:

  • A shopping bus to local shopping centres (Forest Hills Chase, Burwood One and Waverley Gardens) on a Monday morning on a weekly rotating basis.
  • Social activities on a Wednesday morning, which may include a meal at a local cafe, an in-house movie, gentle exercises or games activities at Alamein Neighbourhood and Learning.

In both cases, eligible participants are picked up by our bus at your door from 10am onwards and returned home by 1:30pm approximately. There is a small charge, currently $5, for using this service.

To participate, you must be over 65 years of age, be registered with My Aged Care, be a Boroondara resident and to be able to independently board our bus.

As we need to receive a referral from My Aged Care before we can include you in an activity, and do a bus assessment, please contact My Aged Care directly on 1800 200 422 to register and or request an assessment and referral to our services.

If you have any general questions about our services or the My Aged Care procedure, please call Alamein on 9885 9401 and we will be able to help.
