What is Community Care?

Community Care is a range of flexible and personalised services to support you to live safely and independently at home.

You may be looking for a little extra help with housework or gardening to keep your home looking spic and span, or for specialist health care and registered nurse visits after a hospital stay. These services are provided by our dedicated, qualified and experienced care workers who visit you in your own home.

Community Care services can be accessed and paid for in a number of ways – from using your Home Care Package to paying privately , or even supplementing your care with additional services to ensure you’re receiving the support you need. We also offer a wide range of Home and Community Care services through the NDIS and our disability services and the Commonwealth Home Support Program.

Stories and testimonies

Fay Knights

"The wonderful carers at Whiddon Community Care in Grafton, Libbie and Dianne, not only help with tasks around my home, getting me to my favourite places and appointments around town, and making sure that I eat right and stay healthy and active, they make me feel happy.

They have really become like family. I call Libbie and Dianne my girls. They always go beyond to support me and make a difference to my life. For that, I say a huge thank you."

Tony Bugeja

"The Whiddon employees are excellent and always ready to assist us as required. It definitely feels like we are one big family here that cares about each other."
