The Aged Care Team support older people to lead healthy independent lives whilst staying connected to their community. We assist older frail people to gain access to the type of care appropriate to their needs including approval for services such as Home Care, Residential Care (permanent or respite) or Transition Care. Comprehensive assessments are provided in the community or hospital setting.
Brief interventions and programs are available to support Healthy Ageing, these include supporting access to Geriatric Services through telehealth and the OTAGO program - a falls prevention initiative.
Access and referrals to the team can be via My Aged Care on 1800 200 422. www.myagedcare.gov.au
