Help at home

Living independently in your own home can get harder as you get older but there are home support services that can help with everyday tasks. With the right support, you can receive help to make your life easier, and this will enable you to continue living in your own home.
If you only need basic assistance to continue living independently at home, entry level support is offered through Government subsidised Commonwealth Home Support Programme. If your needs exceed the level of assistance, then a Home Care Package can offer higher intensity support to help you stay at home. Private providers can also provide these services.
