Care finder program

A new care finder program has commenced to support vulnerable older Canberrans needing intensive assistance to access aged care and other supports.

Older Canberrans who don’t have a support person and who are eligible for government-funded aged care can access free support to work through the steps to address their needs.

Care finders can help:

  • people understand what aged care services are available
  • set up and attend an assessment
  • complete forms to access services
  • older people to access other supports in the community if required, such as health, mental health, housing and homelessness, drug and alcohol services and community groups.

Capital Health Network, ACT’s Primary Health Network is proud to commission the above organisations to provide this much-needed service for older people.
