Care Finder

Care Finder is a free service that can help vulnerable older people in South Eastern NSW who need extra, intensive support to access aged care services and other supports in the community.

The service can assist with tasks like completing forms and understanding aged care service agreements, talking to My Aged Care, arranging, attending and providing support at an assessment plus finding and short-listing local aged care providers.

Care finders can also assist older people in need to access health, mental health, housing and homelessness, drug and alcohol services and community groups.

COORDINARE has funded four organisations in South Eastern NSW to link eligible community members with care finders.
