What happens to existing services?

Services for current Indigo Shire home care clients will continue, with a focus on helping clients to remain living independently and safely at home.

What happens to existing Volunteers?

We will continue to engage with current and prospective volunteers regarding their assistance with providing these important services.

Will fees change?

All fees for home care service will remain the same.

Will carers change?

All current home support workers will be invited to apply for employment opportunities. We believe in providing local services for local people and using a local workforce is paramount to the success of the program.

 

For more information on existing services

Indigo Shire Council will continue to deliver home care services until the end of June 2018.

All service related inquiries must be directed to Indigo Shire Council on 1300 365 003 until that time.
