Home Care Services provide clients with basic domestic assistance on a fortnightly basis, with provision for a weekly service dependant on circumstances. The team’s objective is to promote re-ablement by supporting the client’s functional ability and enhancing well being, assisting independent living in the community. Home Care Services are customised to your needs and can provide services on a short-term basis up to 12 weeks or for on-going long-term care needs.
The primary client group is older persons, and younger persons and their carers who live in the community and whose capacity for independent living is at risk.
There is a co-contribution payable for services which is determined based on your individual income circumstances.
