Commonwealth Home Support Program

Home and Community Care services, or HACC for short, is a good place to start if you are looking at just a little assistance to keep living at home. The HACC program only exists in WA and VIC and will become part of the national Commonwealth Home Support Program in 2018.

Enrich Living Services offers HACC services in most suburbs across Metropolitan Perth. You choose from a variety of services aimed at supporting your independence at home including:

  • Domestic support such as help with tasks around the home and light housework
  • Personal care such as assistance with dressing and getting ready to go out
  • Social support and companionship
  • Banking, shopping and occasional transport to appointments
  • A break for a carer (respite care)

Importantly, HACC home support services are limited in terms of the services that can be provided and are not supported by a dedicated case manager to assist you. If your needs grow beyond what the HACC program offers, you can continue on to a government subsidised home care package (home care services tab), which will provide additional services and a dedicated case manager to coordinate your services.
