Aged Care & Rehabilitation Services

How to Make a Referral

To help make it easier for people to work out what services they might be able to access, an ‘intake’ system has been created.  This intake system means the person requiring care (or their carer) rings a central number and speaks to a single person who takes down all their details, discusses the full range of possible requirements and then refers the person to the services most appropriate to meet their needs.  This saves the caller having to make multiple calls to the same organisation, often repeating the same information over and over again. 

Detailed information regarding ACC&R services can be found in the ACC&R Eligibility Criteria.
