The aim of the HACC program in Tasmania is to provide basic maintenance and support services to the HACC target population. The program aims: - to provide a comprehensive and integrated range of basic support services for frail aged and other people with a disability, and their careers; - to help these people to be more independent at home and in the community, thereby preventing their inappropriate admission to long term residential care and enhancing their quality of life; The HACC target population is frail older people, younger people with a disability and their carers. HACC funded in Tasmania are targeted at people with basic needs. Services are provided on the basis of eligibility, assessed needs, and prioritisation of resource allocation. HACC service provision may be specifically designed and targeted to special needs groups such as: - people with culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds -people with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds -people with dementia -people who are financially disadvantaged; and -people living in remote and isolated areas HACC funded services are provided either through the Department of Health and Human Services or by a network of non government organisations.
