We were the first private organisation in Western Australia to be granted HACC funding.
We also provide in-home support services for veterans and war widow/widowers. More information about these services may be obtained from the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) on 133 254.
We provide social support, respite care, and domestic assistance services.
Social support may include keeping a person company and participating in community activities.
Respite Care provides carers with ‘time out’ from their caring role and the opportunity to pursue other activities and interests.
Homecare Services also undertakes domestic assistance duties including cleaning, vacuuming, clothes washing, and shopping.
Homecare Services follows the Wellness Approach to community home care which aims to help maintain (if not increase) the independence of clients, and builds on a client’s abilities and strengths. The Wellness Approach is meant to enhance the independence, health and wellbeing of clients. It is an initiative of the Department of Health’s Home and Community Care (HACC) program.
HACC funded services attract a standard hourly fee (usually $8.00 per hour) dependent on level of income. All fees and costs are discussed and agreed beforehand. Homecare Services reduces or waives fees (in accordance with HACC guidelines) where these would cause financial hardship.
