1. What is it?
Community and Health Services Centre
Community and Health Services Centres offer a range of services for local residents depending on their individual health care needs provided by friendly, professional people.
While there is some variation between centres, all provide:
- Home-based nursing
- Help with household tasks and personal care
- Home maintenance
- Health assessments and referrals to other health and community services.
Your Community and Health Services Centre has experienced approachable staff who work closely with other health services such as hospitals and medical practices, staff may be able to assist you with other health care advice and community services that are provided locally or at a major centre nearby.
