Domestic assistance - Home & Household

A carer with the resident

A clean and tidy home helps make living at home safely and independently much easier. Community Care domestic assistance supports you with a range of household chores, from general housework like vacuuming, mopping, making the bed and cleaning the bathroom and kitchen, to taking care of the washing and laundry, or taking out the rubbish and recycling. 

Our home and household home care services can also include larger cleaning jobs, like spring cleaning, cleaning the fridge and cupboards, or organising specialist jobs, like getting the carpets steam cleaned.

We also provide domestic assistance services for people covered under the NDIS.
