How to get access at home

The government provides two streams of funding to support you to stay living in your own home. These include the Commonwealth Home Support Program and Home Care Packages. If you are not eligible for government assistance, you can also choose to pay for services yourself (privatelyfunded)

A Home Care Package gives you access to a ‘package’ of services. There are four levels of packages to meet your individual needs. An experienced Advisor works with you to design and deliver a range of services to meet your needs and help you get the most out of your package. MORE INFORMATION

Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) is an ‘entry level’ program which gives you access to basic support services such as help around the home, assistance with shopping, respite, allied health, access to social experiences and more. ACH Group can help to access these government subsidised services, even lodging a referral for an assessment from My Aged Care on your behalf. MORE INFORMATION

You can access services immediately through private, self-funded services. There is no assessment by My Aged Care and you can access services when you want. This option is also suitable to those who want to access services while waiting for approval for government-subsidised services. There is no eligibility criteria and costs depend on services you require. MORE INFORMATION

Subject to your NDIS plan, you can use funding to access services tailored to your needs. MORE INFORMATION

Meet Jodie Roberts – ACH Group's Dementia Co-Design Manager who has been with ACH Group for 13 years.

Jodie loves that her role makes a difference in the quality of life for a person living with dementia and their carers. Her workday includes providing dementia behaviour support services at ACH Group's residential care homes, educating staff and families about best practice dementia care, and designing training content that is evidence-based, leading-edge and engaging.

Jodie shared, "I am extremely fortunate to work very closely with our customers, their families, and staff which keeps me connected to the experiences people have in residential care. I am then able to share their experiences with colleagues so that we can co-design products and services that meet those needs."

One thing about Jodie you may not know is she is an absolute car enthusiast, in particular Holden's and early model Commodores. Jodie and her husband belong to an SA car club and both drive matching white early Commodore station wagons!

What a wonderful way to start the week!
Every Monday morning, Tai Chi enthusiast Brian leads a class for fellow residents at ACH Group's St Georges Court retirement living community. Tai Chi is a moving meditation and features slowed down martial arts movements.
Brian and his wife have practiced and taught Tai Chi for 20 years, and after residents saw them practicing in their front yard the idea was sparked for classes to take place in St Georges' community hub. Brian said a core group of about 12 from St Georges and neighbouring retirement living communities attend the sessions.
“Everyone in the session is really enjoying it. There are wonderful health benefits that come with Tai Chi - improving mobility, balance and general fitness,” he said. “The classes are free, I’m passionate about doing something for our community, and when the COVID-19 restrictions allow, we all enjoy a cup of tea after.”
