My Aged Care

The Home Care Packages program is a government-subsidised program that provides long-term support for older people +65 who want to remain living at home independently.

Home Care Packages was a new venture for ADEC and in July 2018, ADEC had 11 Home Care Packages which grew to over 35 packages by end of June 2019.

Our biggest advocates have been our aged care clients whose word-of-mouth referrals have resulted in new referrals and clients transferring their packages from other organisations to ADEC. Our Case Management and Support Coordination is delivered on the foundation of compassion, holistic, value-based care and by providing ethnic support workers to match our client’s ethnicity. Our USP is our tag line “we are just a phone call away”

The ADEC Aged Care Team has held 14 information sessions over the last 9 months, connecting with different CALD communities resulting in more than 100 referrals to access My Aged Care. Some of the communities linked to various services are the Fijian, Karen, Egyptian, Greek, Indian, Turkish and the Chinese.
