We provide a range of services designed to support you, or the person you care for, to stay active and independent and living at home for as long as possible.
In-home assistance is aimed at maintaining a safe, secure, healthy home environment that supports older people to live independently.
Services provided are domestic assistance, personal care, respite and social support.
Our carers will work with you to do a range of household tasks to keep your home clean and safe.
Our carers can travel with you and help with general tasks such as shopping, banking, and paying bills.
Our volunteers can go with you to appointments and help you to access community groups.
They can visit you in your home and help you learn a new skill like setting up your phone or iPad, or showing you how to use Facebook and other social media platforms.
Personal care assistance
Our carers will work with you to manage personal tasks including having a shower safely or help getting dressed.
We provide a variety of respite services for older people and their carers, to help them remain living at home and in their community with safety, dignity, and an acceptable quality of life.
Home support volunteers play a vital role in our community. For information about becoming a volunteer, see Volunteers.
