Gardening and Home Maintenance

Aged Care

You can access a range of garden care, maintenance and home modification assistance and services to help you live safely at home through community care services. 

This includes supporting you to spend time in the garden, helping you visit a garden centre to purchase plants, taking care of garden maintenance for you, or organising someone to mow the lawns or take care of tasks such as changing the light bulbs.

Home modifications

We can also support you to explore and arrange home modifications that will support and enable you to continue living at home. These could be minor alterations to your home and living environment, like adding hand or grab rails, to support you to stay living at home safely. Or they could be larger changes, like upgrading and changing your bathroom or changing the entry points to your house.

What does it cost for home and garden maintenance services?

Keeping your home and garden just the way you like it, or spending time in the garden if that’s what you love, can be covered through your Home Care Package, or paid for as a Private Home Care Service.
