Home Support Program

We provide services through the Commonwealth Home Support Program to residents 65 years and over. Eligibility is determined by My Aged Care.

Commonwealth Home Support Program provides the following services:

  • In-home services
  • Social connections programs which provide activities and opportunities to get involved in your community, be active and social with people who share similar interests
  • Delivered Meals - often referred to as Meals On Wheels
  • Regional Assessment Service, which is a whole-of-life needs and ability assessment
  • Volunteering opportunities.

 Residents need to be referred and have an assessment for the above services.

Referrals are for frail older people 65 years or older (50 years or older and identify as an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person) who need assistance with daily living to remain living independently at home and in the community.

Community service and health professionals can also make a referral.

We provide social activities for older residents to remain healthy and active, helping them to stay independent in their own home and connected to their community.

This is all part of our Growing Older Well in Ballarat Strategy and includes: 

  • Events
  • Destination bus trips
  • Bunch 4 Lunch
  • Social exercise activities.
