Our In Home Aged Care Services
Home's Where The Heart Is. Aged care services in the Home.
Many people feel like their life has come to an end when they leave the comfort of their home and lose their community to move into a nursing home or aged care facility. For these people it can be a necessary evil as looking after their property, as well as themselves, can become overwhelming. Most of these individuals are living the Australian dream, so saying goodbye to that because you’re physically unable to continue looking after it can be debilitating.
Why Choose Volunteer Home Support?
We exist to provide support for the people of Perth who want to continue living at home. With a range of personalised services such as domestic assistance, spring cleaning & transport all covered under the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) our amazing volunteers and friendly team can help keep you and your loved ones where they belong.
Are You Eligible For Volunteer Home Support In Home Aged care?
Services are available to the elderly as well as individuals with a disability over 65 and their carers or over 50 years if you are Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander. You need to live in the Local Government Areas of Cockburn, Fremantle, Melville, Kwinana, Rockingham or the Town of East Fremantle.
Generally, you will have a moderate to severe disability or be at risk of premature entry into a residential care facility. Eligibility is considered based on your need for assistance with everyday tasks.
Your eligibility for a Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) funded service is first determined by an assessor who is independent of Volunteer Home Support. They will meet with you and look at your whole circumstances. They may even recommend services in addition to those we provide at Volunteer Home Support. Based on your needs and your choices they can refer you to a range of organizations for various types of assistance.
If you have never received a CHSP service before, you (or any person on your behalf) can call My Aged Care. Alternatively, you can register online for an assessment with My Aged Care.
