Aged Care Navigators
Aged Care Navigators is part of a national trial led by COTA (Council on the Ageing) Australia and funded by the Australian Government.
It is a free, confidential service that gives you independent information about aged care services and how to access them.
Our friendly, knowledgeable staff and volunteers can:
- explain the different types of aged care services and programs
- show you how to use the government website My Aged Care
- explain the role of an aged care assessment and how to prepare for one
- tell you where to get the extra help you may need to access aged care services
