Age is no longer a barrier to older Australians living active and independent lives. However, there are times when more help is needed than families and friends alone can provide. 

That’s when the Benevolent Society can make a real difference. We partner with older Australians so that they can continue to live the life they choose, confidently and safely in their home. 

Our team can help navigate all of the services and government funding available so you can make informed choices about what is best for you and your family.

Frank's Story

Frank has always been able to look after himself. Through a career in which he’s worked as everything from a truck driver to a hairdresser and commando, he did not think he needed help. When things got really difficult after he broke his collarbone a few years ago, the hospital put him in touch with us.

“I thought bugger it, I don’t need that. But the bloke who came was John, and I couldn’t believe what he got done in an hour – he fitted a smoke alarm and put a new washer on the tap. Ever since then it’s been like that, what they do is perfect,” he says.

We work closely with Frank to identify what he needs to continue to manage at home. “Our role as a Home Support Partner is really important. We work with our clients to give them autonomy and they are key in the decision making,” says Home Support Partner Richard Kindness.
