Domestic Support

Domestic AssistanceA little help around the home can make a big difference to your independence. We recognise that everyone is different so Communify’s domestic workers will work with you to decide what your priorities are and which areas you need help with.

We will arrange to come to your home each fortnight for regular, subsidised assistance with your housework. Our fortnightly service will cost $10 and can be paid for with a simple direct deposit arrangement .

Our aim is to support you to live independently in the community and to assist you to maintain your home.

Communify’s Domestic Service is tailored to suit your needs. Together with our Facilitator , you will write a Domestic Support Agreement that will list the tasks that you are finding difficult. We will agree on what areas are to be cleaned and additional tasks you may need done.

This might include specific kitchen areas cleaned , bed linen change, washing hung out and if necessary collected if these are things that you can’t manage yourself. We will usually arrange to visit you once a fortnight for up to one and a half hours .

Some tasks are not safe for us to do or are we are not funded to provide through our service. We ask that you respect that our service can’t meet all your household needs. We can’t…

  • Move furniture
  • Clean windows
  • Clean out garages or sheds
  • Mow lawns
  • Clean gutters
  • Clean ovens
  • Clean large outdoor areas
  • Scrub floors by hand
  • Do tasks that require a ladder
  • Remove mould, ingrained stains and scum or other heavy duty cleaning.
