SHINE Community Services aims to inspire hope and enrich the lives of those whom we serve by providing quality support to older Australians who wish to remain living safely and independently within their own homes, while staying connected to the community for as long as possible. To ensure that goal is reached, SHINE Community Services has a partnership with our four local councils, those councils being the Towns of Cotteslow, Mosman Park, Claremont, and the Shire of Peppermint Grove.
The aged care system in Australia is being reformed to ensure that it can provide the best possible system for the people of Australia. Here at SHINE Community Services, we are prepared for the anticipated rollover and we are already a recognised provider under the new national administration system.
The new wellness approach involves assessment, planning and delivery of services and supports that build on the goals and strengths of the individual. This approach encourages you to consider decisions that promote personal independence in daily living tasks, as well as continuing to live safely in your home and in your community. The wellness approach is a philosophy that embodies all activities under the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP). The wellness approach has a 'doing with' philosophy, and avoids the traditional way of 'doing for'.
Please see below for the full range of supports and services under which we are registered providers.
