At Care Connect we’ll help you learn, navigate, plan and finally connect you with the care you need to continue living independently at home.
We’re guides. We make things happen. We don’t provide care directly but, as our name suggests, we’ll work with you to work out what your needs are, and then connect you with the care you require. We specialise in ageing, disability, mental health and carer support.
All your needs are connected, so we look at everything, from medical treatment to help with the housework. In order to keep living independently it all needs to be taken care of.
We’ll guide you through a system that’s often hard to understand, to help you learn, navigate and plan. We will connect you with the services that will help you continue living independently at home.
We’re a non religious, not-for-profit organisation, and we deal with hundreds of highly qualified care providers. We are fully independent, and our commitment is always first and foremost to you.
You’ll save time searching and have peace of mind, since we’ve done the screening for you. And, since we’re one of Australia’s largest purchasers of care services, you get value for money.
We offer choice, flexibility and control, so you can live the life you want, your way. Our relationship with you will be ongoing, and our commitment is to helping you adapt to changing circumstance so you can stay connected to your home, your family, your friends and your community.
