Home Assist Secure
Longreach Home and Community Care Inc. strives to provide a professional, approachable service through the Home Assist Secure Program to eligible residents of Longreach, Ilfracombe, Winton, Jundah, Windorah and Stonehenge.
Clients are home owners or private tenants with a disability or those over the age of 60 who hold a pensioner concession card. They must be unable to complete the work themselves or access assistance from other services, family or friends.
Under the Program, Clients are able to receive free information about home safety issues, maintenance, repairs and minor modifications. Longreach Home and Community Care Inc. staff can also refer and/or assist Clients with employing tradespeople to undertake repairs or modifications, or plan future work.
If eligible, Clients may receive a financial contribution towards labour costs for minor home maintenance or modifications excluding maintenance or repairs that are considered to be the responsibility of the landlord (lessor) under Residential Tenancies legislation or tenancy agreements.
Examples of work that may be covered by the program include the installation of grab and shower rails, smoke and emergency alarms, taps, ramps and mobility aids, yard and outside maintenance.
