Our Home Based Services Program provides services to hundreds of clients in the local Bankstown and Lidcombe area. Through our assistance, clients can remain in the comfort of their homes longer, as they become more frail and aged. Our services are individually tailored to meet the unique needs of each client.
Our clients can also catch up with each other in our modern Activity Centre in Georges Hall. Twice weekly we offer our clients the opportunity to come together in our Activity Centre to enjoy a day of activities, great fun, a delicious lunch and transportation to and from the Centre.
We offer these services through a number of packages:
Home Care Packages (HCPs)
Our service operates seven days a week, including on-call emergency assistance. Examples of the services we provide include light housework and gardening, transportation, laundry, personal care, shopping and medication supervision, social support and Registered Nurse care.
The amount of care we can provide is dependent on an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) referral (contact your local hospital for more information on this).
We offer these services for a small fee, as we are a charitable, not-for-profit aged care provider. We also receive subsidies through the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing.
Veterans Home Care
This service is available to veterans and war widows or widowers who wish to continue living at home, but need some practical help with domestic assistance or respite care.
Clients need to be assessed by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) as needing home care assistance. DVA also determine the small fee payable for the services.
Home Based Services Activity Centre
Our purpose built Activity Centre, located within Gillawarna Village at Georges Hall, allows our clients to come together every Wednesday and Friday.
We provide transportation to and from the centre. Clients enjoy a great day out, benefit from meeting new friends, are entertained and eat a tasty, nutritious lunch. All for a nominal fee. Regular outings once a month are also very popular for our seniors.
