We think older people living at home deserve a great life.

What help do you need to keep enjoying life in your home?

At ECHO, we support you doing the household tasks you still like to do, we take care of anything that’s become too difficult, and we help you stay connected with your community. It’s your home and it’s your life. We’re just here to make it all a bit easier.

How do you pay for our services?

The Commonwealth provides funding to help older people remain in their own homes if they wish, for as long as they’re able. The Government allocates a funding program to you and you choose a provider like ECHO to do the work. There are two programs: one for just getting a little help around the house, another for more complex care.
