Home and Community Care
Home and Community Care (HACC) services are provided by MHA Care.
MHA Care is a non-profit organisation and is partly funded by the Department of Human Services, Department of Veterans Affairs and Moira Shire Council.
HACC services aim to provide practical support to frail aged or disabled people living at home and the family members who care for them. The support is aimed at assisting people to maintain their independence and to keep on living at home with dignity, rather than in residential care.
People can be referred for service in a number of ways, for example, self referral, by a family member, a friend or another service provider (e.g. social worker, doctor, etc.).
The Home and Community Care Assessment Officer will then visit the person and assess their needs (i.e. type of services required, how often, etc.). The HACC Assessment Officer will also determine the hourly rate and/or cost of the services to be provided. Apart from looking at a person’s or family’s home care needs, the HACC Assessment Officer may suggest other services to the resident.
MHA Care also provides the following services:
