Social Support

Keeping you socially connected

Keeping socially active is an important part of your routine and at KinCare we support your social activities and connections as part of your general health and wellbeing. Whether you have an established routine and need some support with transport or accessing community events, or would like social visits at home with our friendly Home Care Workers your KinCare Customer Care Manager will work through the options for you to choose what works for you.

Social activity support can also include regular visits to the shops, attending personal appointments of your choosing or facilitating events like a morning tea with your friends at home or a favourite location. If you need help finding ways to get socially connected KinCare can help, with a vast network of community groups supporting a diverse range of interests from sport, cuisine and dining, craft and musical events you can be sure of finding new groups and friends with similar interests and goals.

Our KinCare team are always on hand to help you stay socially connected in the way that matters to you.

How it works

Getting to know you is important to us. Your KinCare Customer Care Manager will spend time with you to learn about your hobbies or preferences, and identify with you any social and community connectedness goals to address – it’s really all about what works for you.

Depending on your individual needs, our friendly and experienced Home Care Workers and Community Support Helpers can visit on a regular basis or occasionally, several times a week or every now and then, we tailor our services around what you want.
