The Home and Community Care Program for Younger People (HACCPYP) in Hepburn Shire is delivered by mecwacare as of 1 July 2022.
HACC PYP is a Victorian Government program targeting people aged under 65 (or under 50 for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people), who need some support, to remain safely living at home and to access the community, because they have trouble in performing activities of daily living.
HACC PYP services focus on maintaining or regaining independence and are not always an ongoing service. The services are aimed at enabling ongoing community access and connectedness and provide much needed support for carers.
Eligibility for services is determined during an assessment with an Assessment Officer.
mecwacare is a not-for-profit, non-denominational charitable organisation that has been caring for the community since 1959. They provide residential, community and in-home nursing care and support services for people who are aged and people who are living with a disability.
mecwacare supports more than 20,000 people across Victoria through a highly integrated service network operated by more than 2,000 employees and 500 volunteers. Their staff are culturally and linguistically diverse, representing 89 nationalities and speaking 100 languages to match the needs of clients.
