Domestic Assistance

RERC/Russian Aged Care provides Domestic Assistance service to support eldery residents with household chores helping to live independently and safely at home.

The older we get, the more house cleaning may become physically demanding and work around the house can even pose a danger for falls and injuries.  Our cleaning services for seniors are tailored to help you to keep your house in order and to make day to day life more enjoyable.

Our Russian-speaking care workers will provide home care support and  help you to keep your house cozy, tidy and clean, so that you can live independently at home with comfort and ease.

We believe that a clean and tidy home can make a big difference to your health, wellbeing, safety and comfort.

After you have been assessed by My Aged Care and have chosen Russian Ethnic Council of Victoria (RERC/Russian Aged Care) as your provider our Russian-speaking Client Services Coordinator will be in touch to arrange a home visit. During this home visit, you can tell us what help around the house you need, and your preferences on time and carer.

How much does it cost?

If you are eligible for Commonwealth Home Support Program most of the cost will be covered by the government. However, you will be asked to make a small contribution.

Our client manager will discuss the cost of the service with you during an initial consultation.
