Community Care

When you decide you need some support at home our team is here to facilitate your independence, health and wellbeing.

What is Community Care?

Our service provision is monitored against the Australian Government Community Care Common Standards to ensure our clients receive the highest standard of services.

Our highly experienced and qualified team, in partnership with you and/or your representative, will develop an optimum plan of care reflecting your values, goals and individual requirements. Consultation services with our skilled Nursing Advisory staff are conducted face to face and in your home.

Building and maintaining a positive personalised relationship with our clients is fundamental to the values of Whyalla Aged Care.

How much will the service cost?

The Australian Government pays for the bulk of Aged Care Services in Australia but you may be asked to contribute towards the cost of your care if you can afford to do so. You will never be denied services based on an inability to pay fees. Please ask us for further information relating to the fees.

Testimonials

The ladies that come to help are so cheerful and helpful that we look forard to their visits. Our Advisor is there whenever we have a problem. We are so glad we found Whyalla Aged Care. We had no idea such a wonderful service existed.

Ian & Isobel

The change has been wonderful. I have help with showering, cleaning, shopping and also taken on social outing for a meal or the recreation centre to exercise in the pool. The staff that attend to my care are all very caring and supportive, I love them dearly and am just so grateful.

I have been a widow for 34 years and all my children live in Adelaide so the girls have become like a new family to me.
