Communify’s Domestic and Transport Services aim to support people to remain living independently in their own homes and provide people with access to essential services and community activities.
We aim to deliver services that are responsive and flexible, that reduce isolation and assist people to remain connected to their community. We work with people by focusing on their individual needs, fostering and supporting their independence and self-determination.
Some frail older people and people with a disability find managing their household duties difficult without support. Communify’s Domestic Services help clients manage their household and domestic duties. Dependant on an individual’s particular needs and circumstances, we provide services that will assist with cleaning, shopping, meal planning and preparation, and other light home duties.
This assistance can mean that people can remain living comfortably in their own homes within our community.
Communify’s Transport Services provide clients with access to shopping, medical and hospital appointments as well as recreational and social activities.
Our transport service is also supported by volunteers who provide safe, comfortable transport enabling
people in our community to attend appointments.
The service includes:
- Regular door-to-door assisted transport to a number of local shopping centres.
- Scheduled bus trips for group therapy and activity sessions.
- Individual transport to medical or other health related appointments.
- Public transport education, travel training and trip planning.
- Information on other community transport providers and options.
How much will it cost?
These Domestic and Transport Services are funded by the State Government through the Department of Communities’ Home and Community Care Program. A small contribution may be requested for our services. Contributions are greatly appreciated and
