The Haven operates two community care programs, they are available for people living in the community or retirement village accommodation
Home Care Packages
Home Care Packages are targeted towards frail older people living in the community who require management of services because of their complex care needs. These people would otherwise be eligible for at least low level residential aged care.
Two levels of Home Care Packages are available:
- Level 2 is a package to support people assessed as having ‘low level’ care needs.
- Level 4 supports a person assessed as having ‘high level’ care needs.
Home Care Packages (HCPs)
- Care Services: personal care, assistance with activities of daily living, nutrition and hydration, skin integrity, continence management, mobility and dexterity;
- Support Services: assistance with cleaning, laundry, gardening, medication management, rehabilitation, emotional support, respite care, on call emergency access, leisure interests;
- Clinical Services: nursing, allied health and therapy services such as speech therapy, podiatry, physiotherapy, hearing and vision services.
Home and Community Care (HACC)
Home and Community Care (HACC) offers a range of basic maintenance, support and care services to assist older persons and their carers living in the community. The aim of HACC is to support older persons whose capacity for independent living is at risk, or who are at risk of premature inappropriate admission to long term residential aged care.
HACC services differ from Home Care Packages in that Home Care Packages are aimed at persons with complex care needs. HACC services offer more flexibility and clients can choose from as little as half an hour assistance per fortnight for various services.
Home and Community Care Services
Services available to clients include:
- Domestic assistance: cleaning, dishwashing, clothes washing and ironing, unaccompanied shopping;
- Personal care: eating, bathing, toileting, dressing, grooming, assistance moving about the house;
- Social support: assisting a client to maintain social contact such as visiting, assistance with shopping and telephone based monitoring services.
