“Care Finders provide intensive, short-term support to help clients understand and access aged care and other community supports.
“Care Finders support clients to interact with My Aged Care – guide clients through the eligibility and assessment process, attending appointments with them where needed and checking in with them periodically to make sure that the services they are receiving are meeting their needs.
“The service is for people who face significant barriers to accessing aged care services and are over 65 years of age or are Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander and over 50.
“For people who are on a low income, homeless or at risk of homelessness, Care Finders can assist if you are over 50 or over 40 for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
“Significant barriers to engagement with aged care services may include, but is not limited to, no support person, limited literacy, difficulty processing information, reluctance to engage with the government due to negative past experiences.
