Active Ageing and Community Access

Share Tweet Print More Options

The Active Ageing and Community Access unit provides support services every week to assist residents to live with independence and dignity. People may be young or older or may be living with a disability or frailty that is related to age. These services support people to remain active and connected with their community. The type of services provided are determined according to an assessment process. A support plan is developed by an assessment service and/or the service delivery organisation with the person and / or their carer to identify the strengths and needs of the person. The support plan describes the actions and strategies, either long or short-term, to achieve these goals.

The cost takes into account the client’s capacity to pay and will not exceed the actual cost to deliver the service.

(Department of Health & Ageing 2001).
