As you get older, ill health and physical limitations can make it harder to stay living happily and safely in your own home.
If you’re over 65,we care about your independence.
Staying independent as you get older can make a huge difference to your health and happiness.
If you're over 65*, we can make life easier by arranging some assistance with daily tasks so you can stay in your own home for longer.
If you have a carer, we can offer them short breaks each week to get things done while you're looked after.
We organise day trips so you can still enjoy getting out and about with new friends.
*If you have an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background we can help you once you're 50.

Seniors rights and responsibilities
You have a right to be looked after properly, treated well and given high-quality care and services.
To make sure you get the best care, all service providers have responsibilities and must meet certain standards.
The Charter of Care Recipients’ Rights and Responsibilities for Home Care acknowledges your rights and those of your family and carers, as well as your responsibilities.
According to the Charter, services should be delivered in a respectful manner.
The Charter also says carers should be recognised as partners in care, and be able to participate in decision making in care situations when the care recipient is unable to do so.
Our services are no cost or low cost thanks to grants from Australian Department of Social Services, Australian Government Department of Health, South Australian Government Department of Human Services and funds raised by our generous supporters.
