Looking After Your Future
Volunteer Home Support is a support organisation dedicated to the provision of genuine quality services to assist the frail aged to continue enjoying their quality of life in their own home.
If you or your partner, a neighbour or a friend believes that you need in-home care services then we should be your first point of contact. Our friendly and skilled team can assist you by putting you in touch with the relevant government department or website which can save you hours of your valuable time.
If you are someone that is being assessed or has been assessed it is important to be aware that you have the right to choose which provider you would like to receive your services from. Factors that may affect this can be the availability of specific organisations.
We provide quality services to help support your individual needs and encourage positive ageing and wellbeing whilst enabling you to remain at home. All staff and volunteers are police cleared.
There is a small fee for service paid at the time of service. In the event, you are unable to manage your money a monthly account can be arranged by contacting our Client Liaison Officer.
Giving you a new lease on life.
We understand that staying at home is important as it can provide a sense of comfort, independence, and familiarity. That’s why we’re dedicated to helping seniors stay in the comfort of their own homes for as long as possible.
Our experienced carers provide compassionate, personalised care that meets each individual’s unique needs. From assistance with daily activities like bathing, dressing, and grooming, to meal preparation, we are here to help.
Our in-home care services can also include companionship and socialization, as well as transportation to appointments and errands. Our goal is to ensure that our clients have the support and care they need to continue living comfortably in their own homes.
Am I Eligible For Volunteer Home Support?
Services are available to the elderly 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.
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 1800 200 422. Alternatively, you can register online for an assessment with My Aged Care.
