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.
- 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

Community Transport provides door-to-door transport for eligible people and their carers.
For everyone's safety during the coronavirus pandemic, we are operating essential transport only.
Council's Active Living program offers individual and group activities to facilitate friendship and enable seniors to connect with the community. As a safety precaution to limit public gatherings and slow the spread of coronavirus, the Active Living program is suspended until further notice.
If you are caring for an older person in your home, support is available when you need a break to rest and re-energise. As a safety precaution to limit public gatherings and slow the spread of coronavirus, we are providing in-home support only at this stage (no excursions or community outings).
Live Life is a program that aims to help Eurobodalla residents to begin and maintain healthy lifestyles through community activities, some of which are subsidised or free. As a safety precaution, all Council events are cancelled for now. Please check with other individual event organisers before attending.
Council is in the final stages of developing specialised home care packages for Eurobodalla senior residents. Further details to be announced 1 September 2019.
