The Neighbour Aid program is designed to assist frail older people, people with Dementia and their Carers in our local community. Jubilee Community Services Neighbour Aid program aims to promote positive ageing that relates to the independence, participation, care, self-fulfillment and dignity of our Ageing community. Neighbour Aid is funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services. Our Services are available to people over the age of 65 who reside in the St George region and their Carers, or Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islanders over the age of 50. Our staff can provide information on other services available to assist you with meeting your needs.
To access our Neighbour Aid program, you must first register with MAC (My Aged Care) who can be contacted on www.myagedcare.gov.au or 1800 200 422. They will either do a phone or in person assessment and you can request to be referred to Jubilee Community Services Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP).
When accessing our Aged Care Services, generally clients will be asked to make a Client Contribution and the policy on this can be downloaded here: Client Contribution Policy
