Nedlands Community Care to cease services in 2024

The City of Nedlands has made the difficult decision to cease Nedlands Community Care services in 2024.

NCC has been a valued service in the City of Nedlands for more than 40 years.

The City is one of the last remaining Local Governments in the western suburbs to offer in-home aged care support.  

declining client referrals, an increasingly competitive aged care environment and anticipated future sector reform has led the City to end the service.

No changes will be made to NCC’s current services in the near future.  

The City will work with its clients to ensure they are connected to a suitable service provider, before 31 December, to continue in-home support and ensure the smoothest transition as possible.

City chief executive Bill Parker said focus was now on ensuring a seamless changeover for NCC clients.

“With a heavy heart, the City of Nedlands has made the difficult decision to cease its Nedlands Community Care home-support services in 2024,” Bill said.  

“Over the next 9 months, the City of Nedlands will work very closely with all our clients and their families, as well as the Department of Health and Aged Care, to ensure a smooth transition.

“In discussion with the Department, the City is very confident the services our clients currently enjoy will be offered by a better resourced provider.

“The City will provide information about additional services available to the current NCC clients under the Positive Aging Program in the coming months.”
