Home and Community Care (HACC)

The Home and Community Care (HACC) program provides support services and care for the frail and aged, people with disabilities and their carers. This support allows clients to remain independent and continue living in their own homes for longer. Service providers are funded to provide specific services therefore not all services may be available within your area.

Eligibility for HACC assistance

Residents of the City of Nedlands, living independently in the community, who in the absence of basic support services are at risk of premature or inappropriate long term residential care and their carers, may be eligible for HACC funded support. A HACC service provider will need to assess individuals to determine eligibility and the level of support required.

Fees

Fees for HACC services are charged in accordance with HACC guidelines and based on individual financial situations. Client fee contributions are designed to be affordable and are negotiated at assessment.
