Barunga Community Care offers personalised in-home support services to residents living in South Australia’s Yorke Peninsula, Lower North and Barossa, to enable retirees to remain living in and enjoying their own home. There are two levels of support for in-home care services provided by Barunga Village: entry level - Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) and higher level - Home Care Packages.
CHSP and Home Care Packages are funded by the Australian Government to help older Australians stay independent and in their own home and community for longer. CHSP is an entry-level program to provide care for people who can mostly – but not completely – live and cope on their own. A Home Care Packages provides a co-ordinated and tailored approach to care based on the client’s more complex needs.
