Our community care advisory service offers information about a wide range of services and options that enhance independence at home. Feeling informed about what choices and supports are available and how to move forward with a plan of action leads to greater confidence about managing at home. Another factor in a positive outcome are the many benefits of accessing local community supports and amenities.
Typical enquiries include people affected by ill health, disability, carer anxiety and stress, risk of falls, dementia, mental health, elder abuse and how to manage at home after a hospital stay.
The service also provides advice on how to effectively liaise with My Aged Care, the federal government’s assessment pathway to government subsidised Commonwealth Home Support Program services, Home Care Packages, NSW Health’s Aged Care services for the community, and residential aged care.
Community care advice can be provided face-to-face at our Lane Cove or Hunters Hill offices, on the phone, via email or in the home.
A free Telephone Interpreting Service is available via the Translating & Interpreting Service on 131 450.
