Aged care and carer support

We provide information and advice, but we also encourage you to make important decisions about your own health and care. You know best how you’re feeling and what you’re capable of achieving.

Aged care

  • Latrobe Community Health Service runs the Gippsland Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS), which assesses eligibility for care in an aged care home and for other Commonwealth funded programs such as packaged care.
  • If you’re eligible for a home care package, we can help you coordinate the services you need to help you remain at home and in your community for as long as possible.
  • We also run planned activity groups that meet to enjoy doing things together in a friendly and supportive environment.

Carer support

  • Latrobe Community Health Service gives carers of all ages the chance to take a short break from their role by taking on caring duties and providing opportunities to rest, socialise and recharge their batteries. We also provide fun activities for carers to get together and socialise.
