Are you older and without anyone able to support you to live safely, comfortably and well?

Join us for a relaxed cuppa, morning tea and chat to better understand the Service Connection program. Part of the care finder network, our Service Connection program is free and provides short and long-term support for vulnerable older people and those who are or at risk of homelessness. 

Meet with one of our friendly Service Connectors to find out how they can help support with:

  • Understanding what aged care services are available
  • Assisting with setting up aged care assessments
  • Navigating the My Aged Care portal
  • Connecting people with services that will support them to engage with their community

Eligibility criteria includes vulnerable older people who:

  • Do not have a support person or are not trusting of their support person
  • Have communication barriers
  • Have low literacy
  • Are reluctant to engage with aged care or government services
  • Have difficulty understanding information to make an informed decision
  • Are in an unsafe situation
