In Home Care Support Agencies

NSWIHC liaises with two In Home Care Support Agencies, one in the ACT and one in NSW. The support agencies determine a family’s eligibility for In Home Care and they are the first step in the communication process.

Once eligibility is determined, you will then be able to resume correspondence with NSWIHC regarding an educator for your family.
