disability

Through the Queensland Community Care Program (QCCP), Bromilow Community Care provides a broad range of individualised support services for people with a disability or condition that restricts their day-to-day living.

These services include:

  • In-home services: Domestic assistance, such as cleaning, washing and ironing.
  • Social Support and transport: Group activities and social support, including help to attend appointments or for shopping and banking, as well as community activities.
  • Respite care: In-home or centre-based respite care to help carers take a break from their role.

Eligibility

In order to access QCCP services, the person who requires the services must fulfil ALL of the following requirements:

  • Under 65 years of age or under 50 for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  • Has a moderate, severe or profound disability or a condition which restricts their  ability to carry out the normal activities of daily living.
  • Living in the community, but having difficulty performing the core activities of daily living* due to functional limitations.
  • Is at risk of losing their independence without assistance from Community Care.

* Core activities of daily living are communication, self-care and mobility. Core activity tasks include dressing, bathing or showering, preparing meals, house cleaning and maintenance, and using public transport.

Note:

Generally, people who receive similar specialist disability services funded through Disability Services are not eligible for QCCP services as well. In addition, people who are assessed as eligible for the NDIS are not eligible to receive Community Care services.

NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has overhauled the funding and provision of disability services in Australia, moving to a model that seeks to give people with a disability more choice and control over the support they receive.

The NDIS also seeks to promote support that is personalised to an individual’s needs, helping people to achieve their goals and to develop their independence. It is being progressively rolled out around the country and will be available to eligible Sunshine Coast residents from 1 January 2019.

Bromilow Community Care can provide services to users of the NDIS who have elected to self manage their NDIS funding. Services are priced as per our Private Service Rates

I appreciate all the kindness, efficiency and goodwill that is the hallmark of your organisation. Thank you Mrs S
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for their total dedication in assisting my husband in every way – which in turn gave me piece of mind. Mrs. M
I wish to convey our appreciation of your team of carers who care for us in our home in Caloundra. They gave us empathy, quality care and assistance constantly to both my husband and self. Paul – you are to be commended on your team; they are marvellous. Mr. & Mrs. W
To M and all the girls who helped look after Mum, I would like to say a very big thank you for the last 8 years, but most especially the last few weeks. It was very much appreciated. Ms. T
I appreciate all you do for me and the way you do it. It feels like friends visiting, not just workers. Ms. I
Many thanks for your service. We found the break to be very beneficial (although too short!). The attention of your staff, which went beyond the call of duty, is much appreciated and we will not hesitate to call on Bromilow again. Mr. W
Bromilow Home Support Services has provided my mother with a team of excellent, dedicated carers who understood the frailty of a fiercely independent old lady losing her grip on reality. Thank you. Mrs. S
To management and staff at Bromilow: more especially the ones that came personally and gave their care and attention. Words will never express my heartfelt thanks for all this. Each of you will forever have a special place in my heart. Mr. T
My most sincere gratitude for your generous heartedness towards me. Assistance during this vulnerable time when I felt very alone in my incapacitation has been invaluable to me. Mrs. R

Your carer AM is wonderful with my husband, in the way she interacts with him and the meaningful activities she engages him in. Mrs. N

I want to thank you for sending L to assist us - she is absolutely amazing. She is a lovely woman who is very efficient. She just comes into our home and gets on with her work. She is so delightful and we are very happy with her. Mr. & Mrs. R
I must commend Kerry to you. She was here today and did a wonderful job of looking after dad, making some delicious chicken curry, a tasty coffee cake, and some rissoles! She is very competent, especially when it comes to cooking! Mum’s very glad we have her. Mrs. S
All your ‘girls’ are lovely. But I do want to commend H’s congeniality and helpfulness. She has exhibited initiative and resourcefulness within her natural caring manner, consistently and with grace. Mrs. R
To all the wonderful Bromilow staff – we would like to thank you for all your input into Dad’s and our lives over the last few months. Thank you for your support and encouragement.

And we are so grateful for the breaks we were able to take and the listening ears that you offered. Ms. D & Ms. B
