Community Care – Home Based Services
The Home and Community Care (HACC) Program provides a range of services that can support people living with a disability to remain independent and living in the community. When people stay active, involved and doing as much for themselves as possible, it is proven to help people stay independent with a greater sense of wellbeing.
Eligibility for the HACC program is assessed prior to commencing any service, and is targeted for people with disabilities and their carers.
