We assist Veterans to remain in their home for as long as possible
If you’re a veteran of the Australian defence forces, a war widow or widower, there are services available from the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) that can help you remain in your own home for as long as possible.
Your Home Care offers a range of services to help support eligible veterans, war widows and widowers to remain living independently in their own homes for longer. These services can include:
- domestic assistance
- personal care
- home and garden maintenance
- respite care
Veterans may be eligible for home help services through a number of programs or packages if they are not eligible for the VHC program. We can assist you to identify your options.
