At home

Maintaining your home and staying well can become more of a challenge as you get older. Intereach provide practical help that will make it easier for you to:

  • keep your house clean
  • start your day well with personal care
  • maintain your house so it is safe
  • give your garden a good clean-up once a year, or
  • have a break if you care for someone
  • get to your medical appointments or social outings in the local community.

Getting out and about

We understand that getting out to see your friends and family, or to appointments is important.

Intereach can help you with a variety of transport options, both in the local area and region.

You can arrive at your medical appointments on time and stress-free, either in town, another regional centre, or in Melbourne.

Transport around town can be arranged for any other purpose such as shopping, getting your hair done, attending a local community group, or an event.

Staying active in the local community

Intereach host a variety of events, activities, information sessions and support groups that provide great opportunities for you to stay active in the local community.

When you phone, we can suggest some options that may interest you.

Phone us for a chat

We develop an understanding of your situation and your personal interests that helps us to provide you with a range of support options for you to choose from. We explain the costs involved and how it works.

Intereach staff can support you through the process of registering with My Aged Care if required.
