The Community Care program is a joint Commonwealth, state and territory initiative. It funds basic maintenance and support services to help frail older people and people with a disability to continue living in their own community.

Kalwun Community Care is designed to support eligible persons to remain living in their own homes in a way that promotes independence and reduces their risk of premature and/or inappropriate admission to residential aged care.

The service aims to assist frail older people and younger people with moderate, severe or profound disabilities and their carers. Kalwun Community Care provides basic support and involves an assessment process. Services can include help at home and help in getting out into the community.

Kalwun Community Care services provided in the community may include:

  • Centre-based day respite
  • Social and Transport support
  • Allied health services

Kalwun Community Care services provided at home may include:

  • Domestic assistance – Household jobs like cleaning.
  • Personal care – Includes help with bathing or showering and hair care.
  • Home maintenance – Includes care of a client’s lawn.

Kalwun Community Care also provides food services, these services may include:

  • providing meals at a community centre or day centre
  • helping with shopping for food, preparing and storing it
  • delivering meals to your home.

In order to assess your needs, a person from a Kalwun Community Care will talk to clients about their daily living. The information provided is written into the Community Care Ongoing Needs Identification (ONI) form. This is used by the all Community Care agency to decide whether people are eligible for a service and what type of service they need.
