Community Care Guide

The Flinders Shire Council Community Care Program aims to assist the frail and aged, people with a disability and their carers, who need support services to live independently in the community. Our services help prevent premature admission to nursing homes or other long term residential care facilities.

Flinders Shire Council Community Care offers the following Programs:

  • QCCS (Queensland Community Care Services)
  • CHSP (Commonwealth Home Support Program)
  • HCP (Home Care Packages, Levels 1, 2, 3 &4)
  • VHC (Veterans Home Care)
  • NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme)
  • MOW (Meals on Wheels)

Our organisation provides services to the entire Flinders Shire district. We believe our clients have the right to be involved in the planning of their services. However, to be involved in this service you must understand the above programs.
