Support Services for Over 65s
Most people, as they get older, prefer to live as independently as possible in their own homes.
Remaining at home is achievable when the right help at the right time is available. We can provide the assistance that will make managing at home easier, safer and more comfortable.
We have a range of support options and activities that you can choose from to keep you healthy, active and connected.
Communify is a member of the healthy@home consortium, comprised of 19 leading organisations who are experienced in supporting people with diverse needs, characteristics and life experiences. Communify as part of healthy@home helps people aged 65 years and over (or aged 50 years and over for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people) to enhance their independence and avoid or delay entry into residential aged care.
healthy@home is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health. Visit the Department of Health website for more information

Supporting an older relative or friend to live independently can be satisfying and rewarding but can also be, at times, exhausting, challenging and even overwhelming.
Our services can help you with some of the tasks that you are taking care of, at least for some of the time so that you can take the time to care for yourself, to work and to rest. Taking care of your needs will help you better fulfill and enjoy your caring role.
We provide services that are affordable, flexible and represent genuine support for the challenges that life can present.
We believe that every community member should feel valued, respected, connected and supported in a way they choose in order to live their very best life.
We provide the help people need to live independently, to achieve personal goals and to contribute to family, community and society.
