Council's Age Friendly Community Strategy was adopted in October 2017. You can find a copy of this document under the Council Documents section.
Hills Home and Community Support
At Adelaide Hills Council, we support eligible older residents to maintain their independence in their home and community. Assistance may be provided by staff, contractors or volunteers. The services are funded by Council, the State and Federal Governments, and client contributions from residents who are receiving services.
Access to Services
Residents can contact the Hills Home and Community Support team to discuss how to access in-home support (at this time staff will further explain the new requirement for all prospective clients over the age of 65 years to contact the My Aged Care screening gateway in the first instance).
Services in high demand will be provided first to residents with the greatest need and there may be a waiting list for services. A financial contribution is required for all services and will be discussed at time of referral.
Types of services the Hills Home and Community Support program coordinates (subject to availability):
- Social outings and events
- Domestic assistance / spring cleaning
- Garden tidies and gutter cleaning
- Minor home maintenance
- Transport for shopping via community buses
Please note that due to funding restrictions some consumers with complex needs may be referred to other more appropriate services within the hills region.

Seniors may also be intersted in one of our over 700 active community groups. Often our community facilities play host to many of these community groups, from friends and special interest groups, to training groups and many more.
To find out about these and our many other community groups please visit our community groups page.
