The Blue Haven Difference
Why choose Blue Haven?
Blue Haven has been a part of the Illawarra and Shoalhaven communities for more than 40 years, providing support services tailored to each individual’s needs and environment. Our experienced team offers nursing & respite care, domestic help, maintenance, social support, personal care and more – flexible, friendly and attentive at all times.
Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS National)
Blue Haven provides access to the Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS National), which serves as an essential resource for individuals who are not proficient in English. The Free Interpreting Service endeavors to ensure equal access to critical services for individuals with limited or no proficiency in the English language. To make use of the Free Interpreting Service, please reach out to TIS National at 131 450 for prompt telephone interpreting assistance.
MAKING A REAL DIFFERENCE
Our personal care service includes assisting people with showering, dressing, toileting, shaving, hair care, assisting with mobility, helping put on stockings, splints or callipers, monitoring self-medication and prompting to undertake a planned exercise program.
Our team is able to assist with domestic tasks including cleaning (floors, bathrooms and kitchens), taking the rubbish out, changing bed linen and doing laundry. We can also assist with shopping for essential items and bill paying.
Our team offers regular or one-off assistance with lawn mowing & garden maintenance, garden clean up & rubbish removal, minor repairs & maintenance, basic carpentry, small painting jobs, and basic plumbing such as replacing washers and minor leaks.
Looking after a loved one can be demanding, which is why we offer one-on-one respite to give a carer time to themselves, via a volunteer or paid worker.
Our registered Blue Haven nurse will visit you at home and provide clinical and basic medical care such as wound dressing. This service also includes other allied health support including physiotherapy and hearing and vision services.
For those living alone or in need of some company, our team offers friendly visiting and assistance with reading correspondence, and card and letter writing. We also offer regular excursions to allow our community to interact with each other.
We offer two service types – you may be eligible for Government funding.

COMMONWEALTH HOME SUPPORT PROGRAM (CHSP)
Designed for those looking for short-term/casual help or basic assistance around the home, the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) lets you choose how to spend your money, when you need it. You’re not locked into anything. CHSP is for people who only require a few services at home.
“I have four hours a week domestic help and we do housework, on Thursdays my support worker and I socialise, we got out and we shop – I love her, she’s good company. And if I need anything else I know I can call Sue my service facilitator (case manager) and she’s happy to help, it’s easy!”
