The Home and Community care services are co-ordinated by your local council and are financially subsidised by the Federal and State Governments.
The HACC Active Service Program is designed to enable persons to stay in their homes with support for as long as possible. Our Support Workers will work with clients assisting with allowed tasks the client can no longer manage at the same time encouraging clients to actively participate in tasks they can still do, thereby preventing risk of premature entry into residential care. HACC services are provided to people who are frail aged, people with a moderate to severe disability, people with physical, functional, intellectual, sensory or psychiatric disability, people with acquired brain injury, carers and familys who have a child with a disability and special needs groups.
|The Glenelg Shire's Aged and Disability Services Manager is available to assist with any inquiries. For more information please contact Ms Samantha Sharp on 03 5522 2232 or by email: |

The Australian Health Directory takes its social responsibility to an elevated level. It combines commercial advertising with community services, assisting not-for-profit and public sector health care providers, and aged care facilities nation-wide to disseminate information on a pro-bono basis.
Not-for-profit organisations and support groups are very important contributors to the overall wellbeing of the nation as they create communities for people to connect with, learn to manage their illness better and enjoy a sense of belonging. This directory provides a platform for improved communication between these groups and their potential members.
The aged care directory that is part of Health Directory, has already demonstrated how health service providers and consumers can benefit from community service advertising. The aged care directory is already a valuable resource for potential residents, carers and hospital discharge planning staff. The directory enables users to find nursing homes and hostels within a desired radius around their postcode and to search for vacancies.
This directory is designed to make it easy for people within Australia and from other parts of the globe to navigate our health industry. There is no other vertical health market directory with a similar purpose - to connect service providers with consumers and B2B suppliers of the industry nation-wide, at a single point.
