Home Care Packages

Violet Town Bush Community Service provides Level 1-4 Home Care Packages. The Program aims to support frail older people to stay in their own homes as along as possible maintaining their safety and independence, based upon the principles of Consumer Directed Care.

The objectives of the Program are:

  • to assist people to remain living at home; and
  • to enable consumers to have choice and flexibility in the way that the consumers’ aged care and support is provided at home.

Our goal is to work with consumers and their families in developing a suite of services that meet their needs. Through a process of assessment and consultation we work with you to determine what your priorities are and provide a flexible range of services to meet your needs.

Working in partnership with our Colleagues at the Strathbogie Shire, Euroa Health and Nagambie Healthcare we can ensure services are local and prompt.

Some of the services being offered include:

  • Case management
