In-home Support Services

Council will CONTINUE to provide in-home support services during the c urrent lockdown.

Council's support services can assist you to remain active in your community. We provide practical support through encouragement and, when required, assistance to maintain and develop independent living skills.

How to Apply

For more information about eligibility, and to discuss your care needs, please contact Council’s Ageing and Inclusion Unit on 9249 4494 or the MyAgedCare contact centre on 1800 200 422 or visit My Aged Care.

Please note: waitlists may apply for services.

Delivered Meals

If you're an older resident, or have a disability, who finds it hard to cook and prepare food, we can provide you with a three-course meal. We deliver the meals to you, and each week our drivers bring the menus for the next seven days.

Home Maintenance

Our home maintenance service provides minor household repairs such as changing light bulbs, replacing tap washers, fixing door hinges – jobs that don't require a qualified tradesman such as a licensed electrician or plumber.

Also, we may be able to help to modify your home to make life easier for you, including:

  • Installation of grab rails
  • Hand held shower hose
  • Ramps.

Before we can install anything an Occupational Therapist will assess your situation and needs.
