Wellness and Reablement
Health research shows that physical activity, good nutrition and enjoying the company of others assists in keeping people living independently at home and in their community for longer. The Kirrae HACC Program supports people to be involved in managing their own health and the way they live.
The services offered by Kirrae are designed to support you or people you care for to stay active and independent and living within the community/your own home for as long as possible.
Programs aim to assist people in staying active, involved and doing as much for themselves as possible. Goals are individual with services that are flexible. The service aims to promote wellness, quality of life, independence and keeping people connected within the community.
Kirrae recognises that we are all shaped by our history and cultural backgrounds, which in turn influences the way we see the world around us, our values, our spiritual beliefs and how we perceive ourselves and relate to other people.
As an Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation, Kirrae Health Service is at the forefront of cultural diversity and awareness. At the service we have a dedicated Cultural Room representing the history of the Framlingham Community. We have Aboriginal Health Workers available to liaise with clients and health professionals and to assist HACC staff with any cultural diversity needs.
Whilst our organisation provides services primarily for Aboriginal people and their families, others associated with us are influenced by their own culture, age group and experiences.
Kirrae is mindful that each individual has a right to expect quality of service that is culturally appropriate and tailored to suit their individual needs.
