About us and more...
Comm Care is a family owned business and is an approved government provider of aged care in the home and community. We provide boutique home care and support delivered through the government subsidised home care package or private independent care. Packages are delivered by our trained staff committed to delivering an individually tailored care program from basic to high level care needs and includes a wide range of personal, specialised, transport, respite and household tasks as well as an ongoing review of care.
