Maroochy Home Maintenance and Care (commonly know as Maroochy Home Assist) is a not for profit organisation based on the beautiful Sunshine Coast. For over 20 years we have offered subsidised assistance with minor home maintenance and minor and major home modifications for frail, aged and disabled clients.
As well as continuing to provide subsidised services we now also offer handyman and modification services to Home Care Package recipients and National Disability Insurance Scheme participants. Please call our friendly office staff with any request big or small and we will let you know if it is something we can assist with.
Minor home modifications can include the installation of grab rails, hand rails, rubber wedges, chair and bed raisers for which an Occupational Therapy Assessment is required and can be arranged by us.
Minor home maintenance covers smoke alarm checks, changing of light globes, lock and door handle repairs, appliance repairs, subsidised plumbing and electrical work, key safe installation, minor carpentry and more. Minor works can be completed in the area from Beerburrum to Peregian Springs and out to Kenilworth and Conondale.
Major home modifications refers to things such as removing baths and/or hobs to create wheelchair friendly bathrooms and installation of stairlifts and access ramps all built to Australian Disability Standards. Major modifications cover a huge area from Woody Point and Petrie in the south, up to Gympie and Tin Cay Bay and out to Kilcoy and Widgee.
We pride ourselves on quality workmanship from our builders, quick turnaround times and low costs.
