MannaCare Home Maintenance Service, funded under the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP), aims to provide advice and assistance with home maintenance to help maintain a safe, habitable and healthy home environment for older people and those with a disability.
We can also do small and minor repairs.
In addition, we offer CHSP Occupational Therapy services which can assist older people with advice on rail modification installations and home safety assessments.
MannaCare charges fees in line with CHSP guidelines.
These services are available to any resident in the Eastern Metropolitan Region who is:
• 65 years or older,
• 50 years or older and identify as an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person, or
• 50 years or older and on a low income, homeless or at risk of homelessness.
Typically, the home maintenance service can help with:
- installing ramps, steps and handrails
- doing minor home modifications (such as minor carpentry and shower hardware modifications)
People can either apply directly for the service or be referred through a range of CHSP assessors.
We also accept referrals from the State-wide Equipment Program (SWEP), with referrals coming through occupational therapists of treating health services.
