Cambridge seniors to receive more services and greater choice
From 1 July this year, seniors living in the Town of Cambridge will be able to access a wider variety of home support and community care services as the Town of Cambridge joins a growing number of local governments transitioning out of the delivery of Home and Community Care (HACC) services in Western Australia.
As of 1 January, 2018 the Town of Cambridge is not accepting new referrals for HACC Services but will continue to provide the same high quality service to existing care recipients until 30 June 2018.
