Veterans Home Care Program

DUO provides support to the ACT veteran community through the Department of Veterans Affairs Home Care (VHC) Program.

The VHC Program assists veterans and war widows/widowers who wish to continue living at home, but who need a small amount of practical help.

VHC customers receive:

  • Home and Garden Maintenance
  • Domestic Assistance
  • Personal Care
  • In Home Respite
  • Emergency short-term respite
  • Social Support

Our work with the veterans’ community focuses on healthy choice and ageing, reconnection with their community and services which address social isolation and mental health issues.

Our Professional Staff

We want you to consistently experience the highest standard of care, and we do this by continually developing the skills and training of our staff.
