MannaCare Community Services

Part of MannaCare

MannaCare's home care and community care services aim to assist older people to continue to live independently in their own homes for as long as possible.

Community services are offered both on site at MannaCare in Doncaster, and in people’s own homes.

Home care services range from helping with physical jobs that an older person can no longer do, to rehabilitation and activity groups, respite care, and connecting carers with other carers, plus professionals who can help them.

MannaCare offers a range of Government-subsidised Home Care Packages:

  • Level 2 supports people with low level care needs
  • Level 3 supports people with intermediate care needs
  • Level 4 supports people with high care needs

Home Care Packages allow people to remain living at home for as long as possible and enables them to have choice and flexibility in the way that the package is managed.

The types of services a home care package can offer includes:

  • Transport
  • Personal care
  • Nutritional services
  • Continence management
  • Social activities
  • Clinical care
  • Home and garden maintenance
  • Cleaning
  • Shopping and meal preparation

MannaCare's Grevillea House offers a range of respite services:

  • Social support day programs
  • Overnight cottage respite
  • Flexible respite
  • In-home respite
MannaCare also operates a day respite program at Cassia House that runs Thursday to Saturday each week.
Other services offered by MannaCare Community Services include: 
  •  Allied health services (CHSP and Fee for Service) provided by Doncaster Rehabilitation Services such as OT assessment and Physiotherapy
  • GymActive: a gym open to the public  for older people that is supported by staff within the allied health team.
  • Home Maintenance service (CHSP and Fee for Service) that provides rails and rail installation, general maintenance, gardening and spring cleaning services

Review Guidelines.

Reviewing an aged care provider is a great way to share your thoughts. But please follow the policies listed below when writing a review.

We will remove content that violates any of the policies listed below:

  • Conflict of interest: Reviews are most valuable when they are honest and unbiased. Please do not review your own aged care service or that of a competitor.
  • Off-topic reviews: Do not post reviews based on a third party experience, they must be your own. Our reviews are not a forum for general political or social commentary or personal rants.
  • Impersonation: Do not post reviews on behalf of other people or misrepresent your identity or connection with the aged care provider you are reviewing.
  • Language: Do not use offensive, profane, or obscene language. We will remove reviews that represent personal attacks.
  • Personal and confidential information: Do not post reviews that contain the personal and confidential information of another person.
  • Spam Content: Please no spam. Reviews should be a genuine reflection of your experience with an aged care provider. Do not include promotional content or advertising in any form. Duplicate material will not be accepted.
  • Telephone Numbers and Web Links: To prevent adverts and spam, we do not permit phone numbers or web links.
  • Hate Speech: We do not allow reviews that advocate against people based on their ethnic origin, religion, gender, disability, sexual orientation or age.
  • Aged Care Reviews is not a complaints system. Reviews must be fair and reasonable. Any defamatory statements reflecting a personal experience that has not yet been taken up with the respective provider will not be accepted. If you have a personal complaint to make about an aged care facility we encourage you to contact your provider directly using the details provided on their listing. Alternatively you can submit a complaint via the Government’s Aged Care Complaints Scheme.
