Our approach

At Chorus, we offer the support you need to live independently and remain in your home. We work alongside you as equals, so you can live the life you choose.

We support you with two government subsidised home care options: Home and Community Care (HACC) and the Home Care Package (HCP) as well as social activities and outings.

Home and Community Care (HACC) provides you with a range of basic support services in your own home. You may be eligible for this service if you have difficulties with everyday tasks.

A Home Care Package (HCP) is available if your needs become more complex as you get older. You may be eligible for one of four “package” levels, ranging from basic to high-level care needs. The services could include help with showering, meal preparation, gardening, transport assistance, and health services.

Taking a break

By supporting you, we are giving your carer a much needed break. Respite Care supports Carers by allowing them to take a break from their caring role. Respite can be a few hours or a couple of days, depending on your needs. If you live in the Cities of Mandurah, Rockingham, Kwinana, Cockburn, Fremantle or Melville call us on 1800 264 268 or email hello@chorus.org.au.

How to get help

Chorus can help you stay at home. Let us guide you on what supports are available. We can advise you on eligibility criteria and how to be assessed depending on your needs.

Most of the services we offer are Government funded. We can advise you on eligibility criteria and fees.

Regional Assessment Service (RAS) and Home and Community Care (HACC)

RAS ensures services respond to you and your carer’s needs. It can help you gain skills to live independently in the community.

Chorus is one of two HACC Metropolitan RAS for the South West Metropolitan area of Perth. We provide a face-to-face holistic assessment for HACC eligible customers and their carers. We link you with a range of community services to meet your needs.

Once an assessment has been completed, RAS will make a referral to your service provider of choice, following a discussion about your needs and the availability of appropriate services.

Our team of Assessors are highly skilled and have relevant industry experience in Community Care.

If you would like some assistance to live independently at home, please contact My Aged Care on 1800 200 422.
