The COA has been helping people stay in their home with the support of simple food services and social connection since the 1980's. We understand that most 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  such as cooking or driving in the way they did before.

Deciding when, how, and what help will suit you the best is so important, to achieve and maintain your physical and emotional wellbeing. Our Social Welfare Officer will make assessments for you and work together with you to find ways of maintaining your independence by referring you to both COA and other service providers who can keep you connected with your friends, family and community, in a culturally safe way, so you can stay as healthy as possible in mind and body and remain in your own home for as long as you wish.
