The Community Advisory Services provide an easily accessible source of information about a wide range of services and options that enhance independent living at home.  Feeling informed about what choices are available, and how to move forward with a plan of action, can lead 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, older abuse plus managing at home, short-term, 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 subsidized Commonwealth Home Support Program services, Home Care Packages, NSW Health’s Aged Care services for the community, and residential aged care.

Services included:

The service 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.
