The aged care system is complex and difficult to navigate. There are a group of people not accessing the system who need additional support. The Aged Care Service Navigator is a national trial testing different models in different circumstances to support people to understand and engage with the aged care system so that
- They understand the system, including what services are available and how to access them
- They engage with and access the aged care system, including connecting with My Aged Care and receive support to access services
The trial will run for 18 months, commencing in February 2019
HAAG is an Information Hub, providing locally targeted information to people who face barriers to access and vulnerable people through seminars, tailored information, face-to-face support, peer support, assistance with forms and outreach.
