Many people want to continue living at home for as long as possible, and there are lots of benefits that come with maintaining independence where you are most comfortable.

Surf Coast resident and aged care specialist Lucy Lincoln saw the need for high-quality home care in the area in 2019.

Country to Coast Home Care Services is now an established Department of Health approved provider in the area.

Ms Lincoln said many residents want to continue to be part of the wider community they have been in for a long time.

“Maintaining connections and continuing to do what brings you joy helps protect that sense of place and security, which can be key factors in overall health.

“The team serves the older generation with respect and reverence and we work in a way to help reduce the effects of a fragmented aged care system – which can make a real difference for people.”

The fully personalised service is delivered by a team of highly-qualified and experienced professionals. People often feel they are doing – and getting – something of value by supporting a local business that is also a local employer.

“The younger generation is looking after the older generation in their work, so the flow-on effects that brings to the surf coast is one of our key points of difference. We aim to build and contribute to a stronger, more sustainable and age-friendly community overall,” Ms Lincoln said.

Country to Coast Home Care Services shares the Elder Rights Advocacy’s mission for a diverse, vibrant, multicultural community, where older people are respected, heard, well-informed, and can exercise their rights and responsibilities with confidence. Elder Rights Advocacy is also a member of the Older Person’s Advocacy Network.

They are also a proud member of the Aged and Community Care Providers Association (ACCPA’s). ACCPA’s purpose is to lead, advocate and provide support, advice and guidance to aged care providers to ensure a high performing and sustainable aged care sector so that older Australians can live their best lives.
