In the ACT our Community Assistance and Support Program (CASP) aims to enhance health and facilitate independence in the community. CASP provides individuals and their carers with support if they are finding daily living activities difficult due to a health issue.
CASP will assist by carrying activities such as lawn mowing or providing meals or by supporting individuals to perform the activities themselves. These services are designed to help people stay well, and where possible prevent declining health or the need for hospital admission and can include: domestic assistance; food services; personal care; community participation and social support, information and advocacy; minor home maintenance and transport.
In NSW our Out Of Hospital Care program offers a similar service in that it also reduces hospital admission times or prevents lengthy hospital stays by delivering clinical care such as cleaning, meals, and transport.
Out of Hospital Care is available to people of all ages who are either in-patients of an NSW Health public hospital or have been referred by an NSW Health Community Health Team.
If you are looking for a great venue to host an event such as a conference, workshop or get together – Community Services #1 can cater to your needs.
We have excellent rooms for hire in Griffith and Narrabundah (Canberra) and are able to provide access on a hire basis to equipment such as overhead projector, screens, whiteboards and PA System. All our venues are ideal for meetings, workshops, or group activities.
Community Services #1 appreciates that our greatest asset is our dedicated employees.
