Homecare Social Support - Individual

As part of your Homecare Package, Social Support Individual can be included.

What the Service Offers

Shopping Assistance

If you are no longer able to do your own shopping on your own, we can organise a volunteer who will either:

  • Pick you up and take you shopping. They will assist you with your grocery shopping, etc., and then take you home again; or
  • They can do your shopping for you if you are unable to leave your home because you are unable to while recovering from an injury or illness.

Men’s Social Group

If you are becoming house bound and tired of watching television etc, we hold on average of two social outings on Wednesdays each month.  We pick you up from home and drop you home when the outing is over. Paid workers and occasionally some volunteers accompany you and act as your hosts and helpers.

How to access - Home Care Packages

How to obtain these services

If you have higher care needs and are considering accessing home care, you will first need to contact My Aged Care.

Call MY AGED CARE on 1800 200 422, or go to

www.myagedcare.gov.au

  • If your care needs indicate you might need a Home Care Package, My Aged Care will refer you to an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) to complete an assessment. This assessment will identify whether you have high or low-level care needs.
  • An ACAT member will talk to you about your current situation and assess and approve your eligibility to receive Australian Government-subsidised aged care services. These assessments are free.
  • You are welcome to have someone else—perhaps a friend, family member or your carer—attend your assessment for extra support.
  • Don’t forget to tell them, you would like services provided by Ourcare Services.
