New Care Finder service launched in NT
Today we launched the new Care Finder service in Darwin and Alice Springs, with a Katherine launch planned for the near future.
Care Finder is a free service for older people who are vulnerable or homeless, supporting them to access aged care services. Care Finder helps people understand what aged care services and supports are available, set up an assessment and find and access the assistance they need.
A morning tea was held in the Ludmilla gardens in Darwin and a lunch at one of our housing complexes in Alice Springs. We were happy to welcome so many people from local organisations and the wider community to our sites as we commence delivery of this important service.
We look forward to working with other providers as we assist older people to find the care they need through Care Finder in Darwin, Palmerston, Katherine and Alice Springs.
Care Finder is an initiative of the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care, funded through the NT PHN.
