About the HACC Program

The objectives of the Tasmanian HACC Program are to:

  • To provide services to eligible clients, to support people to be more independent at home and in their community, to improve quality of life and to prevent or delay admission to long term care.
  • The target population for the Tasmanian HACC Program are people with disabling conditions (including people with dementia) who are less than 65 years of age – or less than 50 years of age if the person is of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander origin.
  • Services funded by the Tasmanian HACC Program include domestic assistance, personal care, social support, home maintenance, home modifications, allied health services (such as physiotherapy and occupational therapy), community nursing, delivered meals, centre day care and community transport.
  • In addition the Tasmanian HACC Program also funds services for carers such as respite, counselling and information. The program also provides funding to organisations such as Carers Tasmania, Advocacy Tasmania and Volunteering Tasmania
