Community Based Support, or “CBS” as we are more commonly known, is a not-for-profit organisation that has been supporting people in Tasmanian 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 that this has gone a long way in helping us understand the needs of our fellow Tasmanians.
CBS provides a wide range of statewide support services to people who are over the age of 65, people who are frail aged, people with disability, and unpaid carers. All services offered may also be purchased privately by anyone over the age of 18.
One of the services we provide is Day Surgery Support.
For some of us finding the time as well as the support we need to undergo day surgery can be a difficult task. We often need to ask friends or family to take time out from work or other commitments so they can transport us to and from home, as well as stay with us until we are able to look after ourselves again.
What if there was another way?
CBS is able to help with all stages of support – from preparing to leave home prior to the procedure, transport to the day surgery, transport home and then follow up with the necessary support until you are able to do things for yourself.
Our experienced and qualified staff provide safe, dependable and friendly support for any adult requiring day surgery.
While it might just include a lift home for you after the procedure, a cup of tea once you are at home and a few small tasks, the key is to make things safe and easy until you are able to do everything for yourself again.
A CBS staff member can also stay overnight if required, prepare meals and do everyday tasks such as washing, ironing and cleaning where necessary. We can also assist with certain types of medication and arrange nursing assistance.
The Day Surgery Patient Support service operates under a user-pays model, however, clients may also be eligible for some government assistance.

NB: CBS requests essential information, including surgery date and time, location and length of support required. We then prepare an assistance plan in consultation with you.
