What is HACC?

All Home and Community Care (HACC) services are now through Westmont Aged Care Services, who aim to keep you living at home and in your community as independently as possible.

First, they find out what is important to you and what you want to achieve.

Then together, help put in place the right goals and solutions with you.

Westmont's HACC services take an active approach to service delivery, with carers working with the individual.

The HACC service has two main components: assessment and service provision (including Meals On Wheels, personal care, respite, domestic support, Planned Activity Group (PAG), home modifications and home maintenance).

These services are aimed at providing a basic level of support, which actively encourages individuals to work with the carer to enhance their quality of life and independence.
