Safety-related minor home & garden maintenance:
Keeping your home safe and habitable, work may involve minor maintenance or repair work, but does not include major repairs. Garden tasks such as lawn mowing and pruning can only be undertaken if an environmental health or safety hazard exists. Routine, cosmetic or ornamental gardening services are not available under this service.
Respite Care gives a break to a carer by temporarily relieving them of their caring responsibilities, and is available in-home, at our residential facility, and for emergency short-term home relief. Respite care is available to the carer of a Gold or White Card holder, a Gold or White Card holder who is a carer, or a Gold or White Card holder who is a self-carer (for Residential Respite only).
Coordinated Veterans’ Care (CVC) Social Assistance:
If you are a Gold Card holder and a CVC participant, you may be eligible for a one-off short term (generally up to 12 weeks) intensive Social Assistance service to support you to engage with community activities such as groups, local clubs and associations on an ongoing basis.
