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.

- Care Finder Program
- Queensland Community Support Scheme (QCSS)
- Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP)
- Home Care Packages (HCP)
- Veterans Home Care (VHC)
- National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
- Community Transport
- Community Accommodation (Hammond Court Cottages & Hughenden Centre for the Aged)
Private fee paying options are also available.
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 to meet their needs, and we align our service delivery to the Charter of Aged Care Rights.
