(under 50 years for Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander people) with chronic conditions and who are not eligible for Disability Services can also qualify for services.

Rehabilitation Program

For people who wish to restore their independence and continue living at home and in the community.

The Rehabilitation Program helps people to improve their mobility and to return to their daily activities.

It is a short-term program for people who have had a recent decline in their physical function or mobility, for example after a fall or de-conditioning, and who have an ability to regain skills or learn new ways to do daily activities such as personal care and household tasks.

The home based Rehabilitation Program is goal directed and may include:

  • allied health interventions such as occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech pathology, dietetics, podiatry and social work.
  • the provision of basic equipment and home modifications
  • self-management information and education. 

Specialist Palliative Care Program (SPCP)

Domiciliary Care’s Specialist Palliative Care Program (SPCP) is a specialist community service that provides highly responsive access to a range of home based allied health, equipment and support services for clients and their families to meet their needs. The program works closely with SA Health Palliative Specialist Services and other health services to provide a coordinated approach for clients and their families.
