Seniors & Elderly

Helping Seniors keep independent safely

Better Together’s Home Maintenance & Modifications Service is able to help you or elderly loved ones maintain their homes in a safe and habitable condition.

This helps increase their independence while avoiding accidents and preventing admission to long-term residential care.

Better Together usually receives referrals from the My Aged Care service initially to be able to provide services at a subsidised cost.

However, the general public can access this service on a fee-for-service basis.

Some examples of the maintenance work we do include:
  • Smoke alarms and batteries;
  • Pressure cleaning;
  • Maintenance advice;
  • Minor electrical work such as changing light bulbs;
  • Window cleaning;
  • Exterior walls and eaves;
  • Repair leaky taps and toilet cisterns;
The home modifications we perform include:
  • Grab rails;
  • Small ramps;
  • Chair raisers;
  • Custom handrails;
  • Lever handle for taps;
  • Hand held shower hoses.
All Better Together tradesmen are qualified and have undergone security checks. They also adhere to safe work practices, including social distancing and protective equipment to ensure your safety.

Welfare of Seniors

Better Together’s Allied Health Case Manager works to ensure that support is available for older people aged 65 years and over (or 50 years and over for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people) as part of our commitment to the  Commonwealth Home Support Program. Seniors who use the My Aged Care Service can get a referral to enter this program with us.

This helps Seniors who need assistance with daily living to continue living independently at home and in the community.

This service aims to help people to regain or maintain their physical, functional and cognitive abilities in order to support or maintain and/or recover a level of independence so they can continue to remain living in the community.

At all times, the Better Together Case Manager will ensure the client is in the ‘driver’s seat’ and is the expert in their own life, goals and needs.
