Ways We Can Help You

In the communities of Cuballing, Pingelly, Wickepin and Wandering we want to make sure no one is forgotten about or missing out on the care or financial support they are entitled to as they age. The services below are being offered to help keep people active in their community for as long as possible.

Find Out How To Get The Help You Need!

Are you eligible for Commonwealth aged care funding?

We will assist you to find out if you are eligible for a home care package funded by the commonwealth designed to help you stay at home. 

Short Term Restorative Care, funded by the commonwealth, will provide just over $200 per day, 7 days per week for 8 weeks to boost your capability to stay at home. This may be available if you have noticed a recent decline in your physical, social, mental or emotional ability. 

If you have recently been in hospital and are coming back home, the Commonwealth may fund Transition Care support for up to 12 weeks to help you transition back into your home.

The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Flexible Aged Care Program may help ATSI people to stay living in their own home in the community.

Help With Getting Housing!

Do you need housing or accommodation options?

If you are no longer able to live in your own home or need a home to downsize into as you grow older then we will assist you to find options in your community. 

If required, we will connect you to Intelicare smart home technology that will provide your chosen family and friends with peace of mind that you are safe and secure.

One Stop Shop to Get Help.

Make the call - The Village concierge is a one stop shop for small acts of kindness.

 

Phone or email if you need help. The concierge team will ‘ask a member first’ and find a range of options for you. You can also 'accept' an opportunity to assist other members. 

 

We are exploring the development of an app for members to download onto their mobile phone. This will allow you to send messages to your chosen family and friends or the whole Village to seek assistance or provide support.

We may run digital literacy groups to help you become familiar with Facetime, Facebook, Skype or other forms of social media to keep you connected with family and friends - even if they don't live in Western Australia!

Help with Accessing NDIS

Do you need assistance to access NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme provides packages of funding to ensure that people with a disability have access to supports they need to thrive at home and in their community.

If you are less than 65 years of age and have a functional disability we can assist you with the process to access the NDIS.
