Aged Care & Rehabilitation Services

Services provided outside Health

 

The Aged Care and Rehabilitation (AC&R) service works closely with a range of other services designed to meet the needs of our key client groups (older people, people requiring rehabilitation and carers). These other local services are delivered by other government departments, the non-government sector (eg. charities and community organisations) as well as the commercial sector.
 
Examples of complementary services which are in great demand for AC&R clients include:
  • Community transport;
  • Meals on Wheels;
  • Respite services;
  • Personal care services;
  • Domestic assistance services;
  • Home Modification and Maintenance Services.
 
The Commonwealth Respite and Carelink Centre (1800 052 222) provides up to date information on the full range of services available locally.
