Assisted home cleaning

Help at home - Domestic Assistance

What is Domestic Assistance?

Domestic Assistance supports clients with general house cleaning tasks which they can no longer manage independently. Our intention is to work alongside our clients where possible, in order that they maintain their capacity to undertake domestic tasks.

What can Knox City Council offer?

Domestic Assistance is normally provided in the home and may include:

  • vacuuming and/or mopping;
  • bathroom and toilet cleaning;
  • changing of bed linen;
  • dishwashing;
  • dusting;
  • laundry and/or a small amount of ironing;
  • help with meal preparation; and/or,
  • unaccompanied shopping (shopping on behalf of a client from a list).
