In partnership with Westmont Aged Care Services Ltd., eligible people with disabilities, the aged, and their carers will be able to access the full range of Home and Community Care Services. Generally speaking Westmont will be providing the "in-home" services, and we will be providing the "in-community" services such as activity groups at The Willows and respite at McFarland House.

Support to Older Carers Program

The Support to Older Carers Program offers carers over 60 years of age (or 45 if Indigenous) planning and support for their current situation and into the future. The UnitingCare Goulburn North East Planner will discuss with the carers their current needs, in order to connect them with in-home assistance and respite options. Future planning could include connecting with disability, aged care or social services, facilitating a Power of Attorney, a Will or making a financial or estate plan.
