Aged and Community Care
The Rural City of Wangaratta Aged and Community Care team offers a range of services that enhance and maintain the abilities and independence of eligible individuals.
We aim to ease the navigation of aged care services, which can sometimes be confusing, time-consuming and overwhelming.
Services are available for frail older people, people with a disability and their carers.
Priority is given to those who are unable to continue living independently without support.
This includes a person-centred approach designed to assist individuals to maintain their confidence, stay active and healthy and to strengthen their capacity to adapt to changing life circumstances.
The first step to obtaining services is an assessment, where possible in the client’s home, and assists people to explore a range of ways to live independently and remain active members of their community.
Assistance can be either short or long-term depending on the assessed needs of individual.
