Access and support program

Access and support program

What to expect:

This program is tailored for people aged 65+ and have a CALD background and need assistance to understand their options for entry in to aged care services. Fronditha Care specialises in assisting people from a Greek background.

A qualified and experienced care consultant will work with you one-on-one to support you in accessing services that are best suited to your current needs and wants.

They will listen to what you desire, what you need help with to stay at home and what you want to be able to do or keep doing.

The program can refer you to services that:

  • Help with meal preparation or delivered meals
  • Offer home help like cleaning and washing
  • Shopping assistance
  • Connect you with an interest group
  • Advise you on community health services
  • And provide information on personal care services

Eligibility

The Access and Support program can also provide secondary consultation to other service providers who are seeking the cultural expertise in working effectively with individuals of a Greek speaking background. This may involve joint assessments, input into care planning and sharing knowledge to assist in understanding the intricacies of the Greek culture.

The program works with people with unmet health needs. To qualify, people must be eligible for services through the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP).

The Access and Support Program is funded by the Commonwealth Government.
