What is Community Care?
Whiddon’s Community Care services are here to help you stay living safely and independently in your own home.
These services are provided by dedicated, experienced and qualified staff and range from help with domestic tasks and housework, preparing tasty meals and shopping for groceries, to assisting you to access your community with transport options.
Community Care services include care provided under a subsidised Home Care Package or services that are accessed and paid for privately.
Our philosophy has always been to support our clients’ choices and wishes and to enable them to stay as independent as possible. We work closely with our clients and their families to create a care plan that addresses the things that matter most to them. This can include regular social outings, activities and assistance with pursuing interests.
We pride ourselves on finding great practical solutions that help you keep doing and rediscovering the things that matter to you. For example, we can help you find safe ways to spend time in the garden, go dancing, join your family on holiday or even take the dogs for a walk. We don’t have a one size fits all approach as our clients all have very different stories.
What does it cost?
Community Care services can be provided under government subsidised Home Care Packages, through the Commonwealth Home Support Program, or paid for privately. Talk with us about our affordable pricing, we’re here to help.
Whiddon is an approved provider for Home Care Packages, the Commonwealth Home Support Program, the NDIS and the Community Visitors Scheme.
