Aged care navigator trials begin

Published

A trial of a national network of outreach centres, information hubs and advisors has been launched to help vulnerable seniors navigate the aged care system and access services.

The $7.4 million trial is part of the Aged Care System Navigator initiative, which was announced in the 2018-19 Federal Budget and a key recommendation of the Tune Review to help older people struggling to understand and use the aged care system.

Most support services will be delivered face-to-face but there will also telephone and online options.
