The City of Mitcham's Community Wellbeing team offers a range of services to facilitate the ongoing wellbeing and independence of older and vulnerable people so that they can continue to live in their homes and participate actively in the community for as long as possible.
Tailored services can be arranged and delivered by a team of professional coordinators, staff, trained volunteers or Council approved contractors. Keeping up with activities in and around the home, as well as in the community, contributes to optimum health and wellbeing. The services offered by the City of Mitcham have this focus and include:
- Domestic Assistance
- Home Modifications
- Home and Garden Maintenance
- Social Support Programs
- Transport Services

Do You Have a Concern?
Community Wellbeing does our best to provide quality services to our residents, but issues can occur. Making a complaint or giving us your feedback is not ‘being difficult.' Complaints are important as they help us improve the quality of services we provide to you or your loved one.
If you feel comfortable, we encourage you to raise any concern with our staff first as this is often the best way to quickly resolve your complaint. We have a complaints system in place and staff who are dedicated to resolving issues with respect and care.
If this doesn’t work or you don’t feel comfortable, the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission can support you to resolve your complaint. They provide a free service for anyone to raise a concern about the quality of care or services provided to people receiving Australian Government funded aged care. Visit the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission to learn more about how to lodge a complaint or give feedback about a service.
Responding to High Risk Vulnerable People
The Southern Services Reform Group have created a resource guide to assist in responding to high risk vulnerable people. The guide (adapted from the Eastern Collaborative Project Resource Guide) also provides contact details for emergency services and relevant service providers.

Community Wellbeing services are jointly funded by the Department of Health as part of the Commonwealth Home Support Programme, Department of Human Services as part of the SA Home and Community Care Programme and the City of Mitcham.
