Awabakal Aged Care Services is a comprehensive program that offers quality services to our community.
How Aged Care Services work
Awabakal Aged Care Services staff will work with you to develop what is known as 'My Story'. This will include asking questions about your family, your history and your health.
This is where you are able to discuss what is important to you, any worries you have about your health, what you might need to help improve your day to day life and what kind of support you require.
Based on your story, Awabakal will help with building a 'plan' for you. This plan will be tailored to your individual needs and will incorporate the services you will require.
