The Town of Bassendean Seniors & Disability Services provides in-home, community and centre based services to assist people who are frail aged or have disability and Carers to continue living independently at home or within the Community

Seniors & Disability Services offer In – home and Community services via:

  • Home & Community Care (HACC) - People with HACC eligibility.
  • Home Care Packages Levels 1-4 (HCP) - People with more complex care needs.

With these funds, the staff and volunteers of Seniors & Disability Services deliver six major services, namely:

Hyde Retirement Village

This village is comprised of 31 independent living units. It is located at 2-10 James Street, Bassendean, which is very close to the Town Centre with all the facilities just a few moments walk away. There is also access to a Transperth bus stop just out the front of the Village, as well as the train station on Guildford Road.

The provision of independent living units at the Hyde Retirement Village in James Street, is an important component of Council's strategy to support healthy ageing, foster continued independence and encourage freedom of choice in the community. It has been acknowledged throughout the years that many long-term residents of the Town of Bassendean have a strong desire to remain in the area when they can no longer live in the larger family home, rather than having to move away from established friends and social networks.
