SOCIAL SUPPORT

 

The primary aim of the Social Support Program is to link eligible clients to support services, centre-based day care programs, friendly visiting, assisting with correspondence, telephone based monitoring services and transport via car or community bus.

Social Support Services are provided by a companion (paid worker or volunteer) either within the home environment or while accessing wider community services or facilities.  This includes friendly visiting services, assistance with correspondence, shopping assistance and telephone-based monitoring services. 

Shopping and medical appointments: transport by a volunteer or paid staff can also be arranged - cost: gold coin donation.

All shopping & account paying services are offered within the boundaries of the clients’ Council. Where the client requires specific shopping to ethnic shops then this can be offered ad-hoc or on specific occasional trips.

Please note the Multicultural Community Council of South Australia (MCCSA) may provide a monthly shopping trip to Greek specific shops which clients need to be referred to.
