Bridges is a not for profit organisation which has been delivering services to the elderly and people with a disability in the Knox and South West Yarra Ranges for over 40 yrs. All our services promote independence and socialisation using a centred person approach to ensure services are fulfilling the needs of our clients.
Bridges operates under the guidelines provided by the Department of Health and Human services through Commonwealth Home Support Program and Vic Home and Community Care Program. Bridges delivers services at the highest standard and complies with the Home Care Standards whilst working to improve the health and wellbeing of our community.
Bridges is lucky to have around 250 wonderful volunteers who add value to a range of support services which include Transport, Community Access, Pet Companion Program, Social Activities and our Shopping Bus.
Bridges Connecting Communities is supported by financial assistance from the Commonwealth and Victorian Governments.
Bridges now runs the Knox Senior Safety Register this is a new program in Knox for residents who may like a monthly phone call, a service that promotes safe and confident living for our senior residents. It aims to give residents, relatives and friends peace of mind knowing that they are connected with their community if they need support. The program is ideal for isolated residents living alone.
