The North Coast Primary Health Network, Healthy North Coast, has started a free service for seniors to help them connect to aged care services.
NVC Group Home & Community Care Manager Jacqueline Wills said EACH is a new care finder service that assists elderly people needing assistance to access home care services or other aged care services.
“I would like to welcome the EACH Care Finders and thank Healthy North Coast and the Australian Government for providing the free service,” she said.
“The service will help local residents when talking to My Aged Care, should they need assistance, and help connect residents to home care providers or other aged care services in their area.
“I encourage any local resident experiencing challenges in accessing services or navigating the My Aged Care system to give an EACH Care Finder a call.”
