What are Community Care & Commonwealth HACC Programs?
The Community Care and Commonwealth HACC Programs support and help approved elderly and disabled members of the community to live at home independently.  The Community Care and Commonwealth HACC services provide eligible people with handyman help at home and in the yard, which enables people to retain their independence.

Community Care and Commonwealth HACC services in Charters Towers are supported by the local Community Health Centre, Community Mental Health, Charters Towers Home Care, Blue Care, Home Assist Secure, Warrignu and the Charters Towers Regional Council.

To be eligible for services, consumers are assessed and rated with an Ongoing Needs Identification (ONI) priority rating.  These are conducted by:   

  • Bluecare - Phone 07 4787 1995; or,
  • Charters Towers Home Care 07 4787 5574.
