At Your Brain in Mind, we offer an Aged Care Navigation Service that can help provide you and your family with information about the Aged Care System and help to link you with different services and support options to assist you.
Our Aged Care Navigator has over 9 years of experience working for the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) and has an excellent understanding of the Aged Care System and of locally available supports.
To best assist you with accessing the most appropriate services and ensure we get the process right from the beginning, the Aged Care Navigation Service starts with a Comprehensive Assessment of your needs. This is an assessment of your health, function, psycho-social situation, and cognitive abilities. This Comprehensive Assessment forms the basis of the Aged Care Navigation Service. It will help us, you, and your family, to clarify your care needs and make decisions about which services and supports you might want to access. We can then provide you with an assessment report, which can also be provided to your GP. You can take this with you when you are accessing health and care services to help you quickly and easily communicate your history and care needs (in a format that will be well understood by assessment services and care providers).
