Programs are based on eligibility for service and for those who are residents of the Warrumbungle Shire.
An over the phone assessment with a My Aged Care assessor will assist in determining eligibility for those in the community who are 65 years and over and 50 years and over for Indigenous community members. My Aged Care can be contacted on 1800 200 422.

For younger people with a disability and their carers an over the phone conversation with one of the trained Coordinator's can determine eligibility before an in-home assessment takes place. The people who are most in need are given priority of access to services. Services are dependent on resources being available at the time.

Food Service

Meals on Wheels (hot meals) and a Frozen Food Service. The aim of this service is to provide nutritionally balanced meals to those who are permanently or temporarily unable to cater for themselves. It also provides a short friendly visit by a volunteer, value for money and peace of mind to the service user’s family and those living alone receiving the service.

Social Support

A range of support services such as shopping assistance, social group meetings and outings, individual visits and telephone monitoring. The aim of this service is to provide social contact and assistance in participating in community life thus enhancing their quality of life.

Home Maintenance

Primarily a lawn maintenance service with some Handyman services. The aim of this program is to provide assistance with the maintenance of service user's lawns, gardens and yards to help keep them in a safe and habitable condition. The program can also cater for minor household maintenance of a non-tradesman type.

Respite - Support for Carers Program

The aim of this program is to offer in home support for carers who need a break, attend an appointment, or simply have a day out. Carers are usually family members who provide support to children or adults who have a disability, chronic condition or who are frail aged. Carers can be parents, brothers, sisters, friends or children of any age. Carers may care for a few hours a week or all day every day.

Community Transport

Our Community Transport program provides non emergency transport to local and out of town destinations to a target group of the frail aged and younger people with a disability and their carers and those who are isolated or unable to access transport through private or public means. This is a volunteer based program and we are proud to have on board a great team of caring, friendly and safe drivers. Warrumbungle Community Care has a fleet of 6 vehicles across the Shire, which includes a wheel chair accessible bus.
