All kinds of non-medical support exists to help older people stay living at home.
But putting the exact mix of services you need in place can really take some sorting out.
For the carers and families of older people, navigating a path through the maze of at home assistance offered by the aged care system can be a complex process to sort out alone.
But with the advent of the new AgeSmart service, it’s now become easy to access and implement the exact mix of at home services you need - at the most appropriate time, in the correct combination, in just the right amounts.
AgeSmart has been specially formed to professionally coordinate and provide clients with ready access to a full spectrum of non-medical support services – from Advanced Care Plans, to wills and powers of attorney, to top-up community care and health services.
Our systems are also uniquely set up to keep each client’s GP informed about the current at home services their patients are receiving.
To enable all clients to minimise their out-of-pocket costs, we also make certain that access to every single government subsidised entitlement is maximised.
A Comprehensive Care Plan is tailored to meet each client’s personal situation
Through offering access to a full range of non-medical services AgeSmart is able to comprehensively address the specific at-home needs of each individual client – even as their personal situation alters over time.
Here is a complete list of the services you can use in any combination. This can include:
- patient support, e.g. bill payment, personal alarms, transport
- support with daily living activities, e.g. home help, home nursing, delivered meals
- non-health professional services, e.g. wills, advanced care plans, and powers of attorney
- allied health services, e.g. physiotherapy, podiatry, speech therapy.
