Funding for Buloke Shire’s Aged & Disability Services is provided through the Home and Community Care (HACC) Program and other State and Federal funding programs. The Aged & Disability Services Unit uses the Victorian government’s Living at Home Assessment tool and the principles underpinning its Active Service Model.

All Aged & Disability Services staff have attained the Certificate III in Community Care and the Certificate III or higher in Aged Care. Staff also participate in ongoing further education and training to serve the needs of the community. Council is responsible for ensuring a safe workplace for its employees. A safety check of your home and equipment will be conducted prior to your service commencing.

Please note, in addition to being able to pay your Home Care accounts in person at Buloke Shire Council’s Wycheproof District Office, Home Care clients are now able to pay their Home Care accounts at their local Post Office in each town.
