The Aged Care program develops and sustains culturally appropriate services which enable frail, aged and disabled residents within the Sunrise Health Service region to live within their own communities.
The program’s objectives include:
- The provision of expertise to identify and advise on aged care health priorities and solutions;
- Building the capacity of remote health centre staff to provide the highest possible standard of culturally appropriate health care in the area of aged care.
Additionally, the program provides services in the areas of home help including social support, housekeeping, laundry, meals and shopping. Personal care is provided including respite care to enable families to have a break from caring for their elders.
