Our community living services provide you with tailored support in your home to help you maintain your lifestyle and your independence.

We take the time to get to know you and will work closely with you and your family or carer to discuss options and develop a personalised care plan to achieve the goals you set.

If there’s a hobby or activity you’re passionate about, we can help keep that passion alive. If you just need help keeping the house and garden in order, we can do that too. The choice is yours.

We respect your unique care needs and lifestyle aims, and look forward to helping you find the combination of services that’s right for you. As your needs or interests change, we’ll work with you to adjust your support.

Services

Staying in the comfort and security of your own home and your local community for as long as possible is an option many cherish. Our community living services, which are available throughout Melbourne, help make this a reality. 

We are here to make life easier for you and your family. We can lend a hand with day-to-day chores, help you manage your medication, or simply share a cup of tea and an enjoyable chat — whatever you need. Tell us what you’re looking for and we’ll work with you to develop a customised program. Our most commonly requested services include personal care, nursing care, domestic assistance, home maintenance, transport, social support, exercise and rehabilitation, and respite care.

With us, you have choice. The choice to live in your own home longer. The choice to age with dignity. The choice to continue to live a full and happy life — the way you want. Nothing is too much trouble. We take the time to get to know you and tailor support to meet your unique needs. If there’s a hobby or activity you’re passionate about, we can help keep that passion alive. If you just need help keeping the house and garden in order, we can do that too. The choice is yours. As your needs or interests change, we’ll work with you to adjust your support.

Your Support

When you book a service, we deliver. In addition to our standard operating hours (7am to 5pm), we are contactable 24-hours-a-day for urgent requests via our client telephone support service. Your program of support is managed by a dedicated Community Living Co-ordinator — someone you can depend on and who understands your needs and interests. They ensure all services are delivered to the highest standard by a professional, friendly team. All our staff have extensive training, and live our values of compassion, justice, integrity and excellence every day.

St Vincent's Network

Should the time come when you need additional care, we’re perfectly positioned to assist with a complete range of care options to suit your needs.

Our aged care communities in Eltham and Werribee offer exceptional care and support 24-hours-a-day, complemented with lifestyle amenities and activities.

We can also connect you with leading specialists and healthcare practitioners at St Vincent’s Health Australia’s well-respected public and private hospitals, such as St Vincent's Hospital Melbourne in Fitzroy, and St Vincent's Private Hospital in East Melbourne, Fitzroy, Kew and Werribee.

Pricing

It’s hard to say how much your personalised support will cost, as everyone’s needs and interests are different — and you may or may not be eligible for government subsidies. How much the government may ask you to contribute depends on your circumstances and is determined by income and health assessments. Our services are also available on a fee-for-service basis.
