‘We aim to provide you with a safer and more independent lifestyle.’
We receive referrals from My Aged Care, through local hospitals, community organisations and direct. To find out if you need an assessment and if you are eligible to receive this service, please contact My Aged Care on 1800 200 422. The My Aged Care staff will ask you questions about your current needs and circumstances so they can refer you to us. You will need to have a Regional Assessment Service assessment before you can be approved for care. We can assist you to make a referral to My Aged Care.
CORE receives funding from the Department of Health to assist with the a subsidy for eligible clients with the cost of recommended modifications. Clients are expected to make a contribution towards the cost of the work as this is not a free service. An interest free payment scheme is available for home modifications and maintenance work. For Home care package clients, you will be able to use your package funds to pay full cost for Home modification.
We can assist individuals who come to us directly, this would be considered private service and you will have to pay the full service fee, if you are not eligible for government funding.
