New Members

JewishCare WA is currently looking for new members to joins its Home@Home program. If you are interested in joining, or know someone who would benefit from the program, please contact JewishCare WA.

Spaces are limited so please get in touch as soon as possible.

Who Can Join?

Home@Home is a government funded program for seniors who live at home. Anyone who is interested in joining must undergo an assessment by Home and Community Care (HACC).

The assessment is simple and does not take long.

Venue

Each week participants meet at a designated communal space. This may be a participant’s home or elsewhere. The designated space may change every week.

The people who facilitate the program set things up and clean up thoroughly afterwards. So if you do decide to volunteer your home for a session, you do not need to worry about extra work.

Cost

A small fee is charged for each session. Please contact JewishCare WA to find out more about this cost.

Transport

Participants are picked up from their homes and dropped at a designated meeting place. After the session, participants are taken home.

Who runs Home @ Home?

Umbrella Multicultural Community Care Services and JewishCare WA operate the Home@Home program.

Trained staff from both organisations factilitate the program to ensure the needs of participants are met.
