The Care Finder program, commissioned by Gold Coast Primary Health Network (GCPHN), is a free service for Gold Coast residents. It helps older, vulnerable people, who need intensive assistance to access aged care services at home. It is specifically for people who have no-one else who can assist them and are eligible for government-funded aged care.
Under the program, a dedicated Care Finder will visit people in their homes (or another place they would like to meet) and will ask questions to understand the person’s situation and support them to work through the steps to address their needs. The Care Finder program will help the resident to:
interact with My Aged Care
access aged care services
access other relevant supports in the Gold Coast community
