If you are aged under 65's and are not eligible for the NDIS and struggle with activities of daily living then you may be eligible for services under our Home and Community Care Program.
We offer a range of services for young people with a disability and their carers as part of our Home and Community Care Program for Younger People.
The program provides support for younger people with disabilities whose capacity for independent living is at risk and:
- are under 65 years of age (or under 50 for individuals from an Aboriginal or Torres Strait background).
- have functional limitations affecting their ability to manage day-to-day activities
- need support to live independently at home, or while out in the community.
Services are targeted to people with moderate, severe, or profound disabilities and their unpaid carers.
- showering and dressing
- meal preparation
- occupational therapy
- social support groups
- creating a safe home environment
- respite care at home
- domestic assistance
- carer groups.
