About Glasshouse Country Care

 

Your Future    Your Care    Your Choice

Glasshouse Country Care is an approved provider of home and community care funded by the Government to assist individuals and their carers with ageing or disability in a home care environment.

We supply services to assist disabled consumers and elderly people to remain functionally independent in their own homes, for as long as possible. Some consumers may only require support in one area of their daily lives while others may require multiple homecare services.

Consumer Directed Care (CDC)

In delivering CDC Glasshouse Country Care will ensure consumers are at the fore front in the decision making process empowering them to be in control of their lives by providing them with information in relation to service options, whilst exceeding aged care standards.

We will work in a respectful and balanced partnership with individual clients encouraging them to identify their own goals, and help them to tailor packages to suit their own needs.

We will aim to support clients to be as independent as possible and work within a framework of wellness and re-ablement.

Glasshouse Country Care was established in 1996 to provide local community care. Under the guidance of a management committee and implementing the best aged care accreditation standards the organisation continues to grow and flourish.
