Local support coordination is a flexible program for people with a disability which aims to increase connections between people with of an age or with a disability, their families and the local community, to help people of age or with a disabilities to determine their own needs and to identify the informal & formal supports that will make a difference to their lives..
For most people, living as independently as you can in your own home as you age is what you want. But sometimes you might need some help with daily tasks that you can no longer manage as well on your own.
For example, you might need help with home maintenance, such as changing light bulbs or mowing your lawn. You might also need aids and equipment, like a walking frame, to help you get around your home safely and easily. Or you might need help with tasks like dressing or preparing meals. As you get older, you may also need some level of nursing care to stay in your own home.
Aged care services are designed with the aim of meeting your changing needs as you get older.
Persons with disabilities, their families and carers 0 - 65yrs.
