SOCIAL SUPPORT SERVICES

Social Support

Would you like support with:

  • Shopping
  • Banking
  • Bill-paying, or
  • Medical Appointments?

Or would you like someone to visit you regularly just for some company?

Our staff and volunteers offer individual assistance for the frail aged and their carers to support their independence and wellbeing.

What will it cost me?

  • ‘Social Support’ refers to assisted shopping, banking and bill payments with the aid of a social support worker. There is a $15 fee for a two-hour service and a $20 fee for a three-hour service.
  • We also offer a free service whereby our volunteers accompany clients to medical appointments with community transport.
  • Home visits are also available for free thanks to our volunteers.

One-to-one assisted shopping for over-65s

With this service you can do your own shopping with the support of one of our aged care workers.

We’ll pick you up at home, help with your shopping, and take you and your groceries back home when we’re done.

There’s a $12 fee for this weekly or fortnightly service.

I’d like more information…

Please direct your enquiries to our friendly Social Support Coordinator Irene on 02 8338 8506 or email her now.

You can help create a better future for your community.
