Agedcare Alternatives provides information regarding a wide range of services offered by Resthaven and other organisations.
In 2010, Agedcare Alternatives was established in response to requests for help to navigate and connect to information and support about the aged care services system.
Agedcare Alternatives provides free, face to face or telephone information about how to access aged care services, using fully trained volunteer 'Options Guides'. Options Guides work through each individual’s situation to offer options to consider in finding support services. They help older people, their carers and families, to find and understand information about aged care services, either through a personalised consultation at Highgate or by telephone or email.
Our offices have easy access, plenty of close car parking and a friendly and comfortable environment.
Options Guides help people to:
- access and understand information about aged care services
- identify their options, choices and the various
- link to Resthaven services if this is the person’s preference.
There is no fee charged for this service.
Free, quarterly public information sessions on a range of relevant topics are held at the centre. Outreach services are available at a number of locations. Call us to find out if we will be in an area near you.
Where needed, we will support you to access services.
