Community Options is a client focused service which aims to help keep you stay living in your own home.

Is this service suitable for you?
Frail older people and people of all ages with a disability who have complex needs may be eligible if they are:
- Having difficulty coping at home and need services additional to those which are already available, or need their services co-ordinated, or
- Thinking about going into a nursing home or hostel.
Anyone can refer you to the service including relatives or other carers, your doctor, health workers, specialist assessment services or you can refer yourself.
Some people may be so frail or disabled that they may require intensive and/or highly specialised care on an ongoing basis. This may be beyond the scope of the Community Options service. However, if you have needs that are not being met because you are not getting:
- Any assistance;
- Enough assistance;
- Assistance at the right times; or
- The right assistance - we may be able to help you.
How we can help you:
What will it cost?
