Help at home
Home and community care: We can help you stay independent in your own home.
It’s important to retain our independence as we age. The Australian Government understands this and supports older Australians who want to stay in their home, by funding your in-home care services.
This is called the Home Care Packages program, and Uniting is one of the organisations that provides these in-home services. We’re here to make living at home easier, and depending on how well you’re managing at home, we can offer a little, or a lot of help around the house.
Let’s sit down and talk about you.
At Uniting, our focus is on you. We take the time to sit down and chat through all the things that are important in your life, not just your health and wellbeing, but your lifestyle, the activities you like to do, and the ones you’d like to start.
This approach allows us to work with you to develop your personalised plan, so that you can continue to live at home happily and safely. And don’t worry, you can review your plan at any time, to make sure everything’s on track.
We can help you with services, such as:
- Gardening or cleaning services
- Light housework, including laundry, ironing or washing the dishes
- Cooking and meal preparation
- Outings and day trips.
Or a bit more support, such as help with:
- Nursing or personal care
- Organising your medication
- Having a shower and getting dressed
- Help at mealtimes.
