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.
Home and Community Care (HACC)
Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP)
Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) is due to take over from the Home and Community Care (HACC) programme as of the 1st July 2018. SHINE Community Services will continue to provide the same excellent care and services under the new programme.
Home Care Packages (HCP)
Home Care Packages (HCP) are customised packages that assist you in living independently in your own home. The Australian Government provides a subsidy to an approved home care provider that goes towards a package of care, services and case management. With these packages, you have the flexibility and the final say in who delivers your care.
Fee for Service
Our Fee for Service model gives you the flexibility to spend your money as you wish. You will have access to our full range of services and only have to pay for the services you want or the events you wish to attend.
Here at SHINE Community Service, our brokerage service model is consistent with our philosophy of providing customers with choice and flexibility in how, when and by whom their care is provided.
