For the Community
In 2009/2010, we were successful with HACC Growth Funding application to secure a part time Nurse for HACC to provide Health Care to our Clients and additional funding to improve our personal care, social support and Transport services.
Currently, we have 7 HACC Care Workers with the Coordinator to deliver the services below to our clients. Other services remain as below;
Domestic: HACC provides cleaning assistance to those that are assessed as needing them. HACC staff also assist by undertaking laundry services, shopping, bill paying and other general duties.
Centre-based Day Care: Run at the Senior Citizens Hall or sometimes as an outing for clients. HACC and other services clients combine and enjoy activities, games, crafts, outings and traditional lunches.
Transport, morning tea and lunches are provided. The centre is open from to , Wednesday and Thursdays.
Meals: HACC staff deliver lunch (Meals on Wheels) to all client and non-clients as we decided to discontinue volunteers’ services. We also prepare and deliver meals and serve breakfast at the centre.
