Aged Care Navigators

Aged Care Navigators is part of a national trial led by COTA (Council on the Ageing) Australia and funded by the Australian Government.

It is a free, confidential service that gives you independent information about aged care services and how to access them.

Our friendly, knowledgeable staff and volunteers can:

  • explain the different types of aged care services and programs
  • show you how to use the government website My Aged Care
  • explain the role of an aged care assessment and how to prepare for one
  • tell you where to get the extra help you may need to access aged care services

What is Aged Care Navigators Trial?

Around the country, we are testing different ways of helping people to find their way around the aged care system. By learning which approaches work best, we hope to improve the way we provide information in the future. Learn more about the trial at www.agedcarenavigators.org.au
