Support at Home

ARAFEMI's new 'Support at Home' service offers agencies, families, carers and consumers the ability to flexibly purchase the support they need

ARAFEMI’s Support at Home program provides help for individuals as well as flexible respite for families and carers in need of a break.
 
We will work closely with you and your family and can tailor individual support packages to suit what would work best for you. Services can be purchased on an ad hoc, short term or long term package basis.
 
ARAFEMI staff are qualified and have extensive experience and expert knowledge in mental health needs, services and coordinating support. Our staff are also experienced in working with dual diagnosis or dual disability.
 
Our age range is from 13-70 and we cover the Melbourne metropolitan region. Afterhours and weekend cover may also be available.
