Keeping you home and engaged...

AQ @ Home services are flexible and tailored to not only enable you and your loved one to remain at home but also keep you actively engaged within your local community for longer.

We believe in supporting all older Australians towards wellness, being independent, and enjoying social connectedness.

Additionally, we provide information and respite services to assist caregivers in taking a well-deserved break and enjoy activities like going on a holiday.

Our staff are specially trained to deliver comprehensive and tailored support, enabling you to continue to maintain an active and socially engaging lifestyle. With AQ @ Home you will feel empowered, valued, connected, and independent.

AQ also provides programs and allied health services including physiotherapy, exercise physiology, occupational therapy, music therapy, and more. Our one-on-one and group services are tailored to meet your individual needs and provide practical knowledge, skills, treatment, and programs.
