Free My Aged Care Sessions

Confused on how to access My Aged Care? Not sure where to start to get support at home?

Coast Community Connections is hosting a number of free information sessions across the Central Coast for locals seeking information on home care support via the My Aged Care website.

The Ageing & Disability Services team at Coast Community Connections will hold the sessions at various locations across the region from Monday 13 November to Wednesday 22 November 2017.

These free information sessions will provide advice and support to locals over 65 and their carers or family members. The sessions aim to provide information on the aged care process as well as tips for navigating the My Aged Care website.

Damien Lutvey, General Manager of Coast Community Connections’ Ageing & Disability Services, said that many locals and clients have expressed their confusion about the range of options available and how they access aged care support through the government website.

“My Aged Care is the entry point for people to access aged care services and information, including what services they are eligible for, information about costs, as well as referrals to home support providers,” said Mr Lutvey.

“As a registered provider of the Community Home Support Program, our staff are highly trained in the finer details of aged care in New South Wales and are eager to share our knowledge with the community.

“The information sessions will be held right across the Coast in an effort to have this vital information available to as many people as possible.

“We understand that accessing information on the internet can be daunting. Our sessions will provide step-by-step information on how to navigate the My Aged Care website to ensure you meet the eligibility and assessment criteria,” Mr Lutvey concluded.

Community members are welcome to attend the Coast Community Connections Ageing & Disability Services Information Sessions for free, with no appointments necessary. Sessions will be held at Kariong, Woy Woy, Green Point, Wyoming, Narara, Berkeley Vale and Toukley.
