About Domestic Assistance
Otway Health’s Domestic Assistance service can assist you with maintaining the cleanliness of your home.
How it works
Once registered with My Aged Care, a Living at Home Assessment will be carried out by a Regional Assessment Officer where your needs are documented and a Care Plan is developed with you, your family member, or advocate.
Your Care Plan will include details of the CHSP funded Domestic Assistance service which Otway Health will deliver to assist you with maintaining the cleanliness of your home.
We work with you to undertake some of the tasks that you may be finding more difficult to complete. By working alongside you, we aim to assist you to maintain your independence, allowing you to continue to live independently at home.
The regularity of this service, as well as fees and tasks to be undertaken are determined with you during your Service Specific Assessment.
