Services provided include case management, outreach services, centre based activities, personal care and domestic assistance in the home, social support, transport services and goods and equipment

To be eligible you must:

  • Live in Chifley, Curtin, Farrer, Garran, Hughes, Isaacs, Lyons, Mawson, O'Malley, Pearce, Phillip or Torrens 
  • Be aged over 65 years or over 50 years for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders
  • Require low level, basic service
  • Not be receiving support through the National Disability Insurance Scheme or an aged care package.

Service users are required to pay a contribution towards the cost of services they receive from WCS for Home Support services. We recognise that sometimes circumstances may make it difficult to pay some or all of the contributions for service and we will always look at individual situations.

To access Home Support you will need to contact ‘My Aged Care’ on 1800 200 422 and get an over the phone assessment. Please nominate ‘Woden Community Service’ as your preferred service provider.
