How to access this service?
For people over 65 access to the service is by Referral from My Aged Care. Clients can contact My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 to register and they will assist you with a referral to our service.
If you are under 65 please call us directly to discuss the program.
Once the referral is made, a member of our team will organise a time to visit. The meeting will often involve the client, their carer or family members. The purpose of this meeting is to establish the potential client’s interests, needs, goals and availability to attend our groups.
