Get help Home support The COA has been helping people stay in their home with the support that they need since 1982. We understand that many people prefer to stay in familiar surroundings with their own belongings, and to remain a part of the community, even if they are unable to manage day to day tasks in the way they did before. Finding help to stay safe, well, and independent at home is a very personal issue. Deciding when, how, and what help will suit you the best is so important to achieve and maintain your physical and emotional wellbeing. The COA will interview you and develop a partnership so you can remain independent and at home. Our social workers will work together with you to find ways of maintaining your independence, keeping you connected with your friends, family and community, and keep you as healthy as possible. They will introduce and connect you with potential support workers and continually oversee your care.
