Seniors

Council provides services for seniors that connect them to community, promote independence and support health and well-being. Services are available to people living in or visiting Eurobodalla Shire. We take pride in being a flexible community based service that provides choice and opportunity. Our supports are designed to maximise your independence at home and in the community for as long as you choose.

We provide

  • transport to and from medical and other appointments
  • support with shopping, banking and running errands
  • social and recreational outings and events
  • support for people who care for a frail older person in their home
