About ACACP

Community Aged Care Packages are provided to Aboriginal aged, frail aged, and people with a disability to support the person with day-to-day living skills.  Level of need of the client is identified by the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) as necessary for that person to remain living independently in the community.

 

The Packages are designed to meet the identified care needs, and each client is individually assessed to ensure all of their care needs are met. Regular reviews are carried out to ensure that the changing care needs of the client are maintained.

 

Services offered include: showering, personal hygiene, toileting, dressing and undressing, mobility, meal preparation, laundry, cleaning, minor yard maintenance, and shopping.  The service can also act as an advocate for the client and/or carer.

 

Care Plans covering craft activities and other community-focused activities ensures the client’s social and emotional support needs are met.
