Tasmanian Home and Community Care (HACC) Program

The Tasmanian HACC Program funds a range of basic core support services targeted at younger people who live in the Tasmanian community and whose capacity for independent living is at risk due to an acute health event, moderate or mild functional impairment or deterioration of an ongoing condition.  ‘Younger persons’ are people aged less than 65 years and Aboriginal people aged less than 50 years.

Tasmanian HACC services provide essential support for people to continue to seek the right care, at the right time in the right place. HACC services aims to help people who may otherwise find themselves needing to access and use health service providers prematurely.

Services include nursing, allied health, domestic assistance, social support and personal care, home modifications, day Centres, meals and transport. Access is through direct referral or the Tasmanian Community Care Referral Service.
