How do I get this service
We will not be able to provide this service without a referral from either the Rural Allied Health Team or the HACC Assessment Team. They will assess your condition and decide if you are suitable to join the service. The team will advise you and the service Coordinator of the decision. Should you be successful, then a referral will be forwarded to us.
The service receives limited HACC Funds each year, and prioritises this funding according to need.
All applications are assessed on level of need. Generally clients will be expected to pay for capital purchases plus an hourly service fee. In cases of extreme hardship service may be provided free of charge.
For mowing services, clients are required to pay 50% of the bill, and are limited to a maximum of 12 services a year.
