Home & Community Care provides a range of services to support and assist the frail aged, people with moderate disabilities, and their carers to remain living independently in their homes.
All persons referring for the service will have a Living at Home Assessment, and if council services are to be implemented, they will be implemented through an "Active Service Model" approach. The focus will be on short term services with the aim of increasing and returning independence.
Home Care, Personal Care, Respite, Meals on Wheels and Home Maintenance services can be provided.
Referrals are received by the Living at Home Assessment officer from individuals, families, G.P. or health services.
It is to be noted that we have a waiting time for the Home Care services. People will be assessed and prioritised as low, medium or high.
Contact 03 5382 9795 for further information.
All services provided under the Home & Community Care Program, have nominal fee charged depending on income.
Under the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2007 the client's home is a workplace. It is the client's responsibility as the occupier of the home to provide, as far as reasonable, a safe working environment. This will be considered at the time of the Living At Home Assessment.
