We can work with you to develop a plan that will support your goals, and help you to maintain an independent and active lifestyle. Your plan is tailored to you depending upon what you need. We will listen to you to find out what you can do for yourself and what you would like to keep doing.
Sometimes you may only need our support for a short time while you get back on your feet. Or the type of support that you may need can change over time as your circumstances change.
You may have a family member, friend or advocate with you, when our staff visit to talk about how we may be able to help you.
Our work is guided by Council's values of integrity, responsibility, innovation and respect.
We have friendly, qualified and experienced staff who are dedicated to help you maintain your quality of life and independence.
All our staff and volunteers also have a current National Police Check for your safety and peace of mind.
The fees for service are very reasonable and are worked out based on your income and are in line with the HACC Fee Schedule.
