Centacare North Queensland is proud to offer a new range of transport and domestic services in Mount Isa and Cloncurry to help the community continue to live independent and socially connected lives.
Commencing in August 2017, our aged care support programs are aimed at helping you to remain independent at home with domestic services including general house cleaning, laundry and assistance with unaccompanied bill paying and shopping.
We also assist you with affordable and professional transport to and from appointments and other social events in private vehicles or Taxis (as managed by us) to ensure you remain involved to your community.
This new service is an extension of Centacare NQ’s mission to provide professional and respectful support to individuals, families and the community across the North West region.
