Flexible Aged Care
Flexible and culturally safe community aged care for Elders living in regional and remote South Australia.
About the program
The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Flexible Aged Care Program provides aged care services that embrace culture while meeting the aged care needs of Elders.
Our community flexible aged care program aims to support Elders to maintain their wellbeing while remaining in community across the Flinders and Far North region of South Australia.
We engage with Elders and communities about what is important to them and how we can best deliver services to support our Elders.
Services we can offer you
Our Flexible Aged Care Program is designed to provide relatively small amounts of a single or few services to support Elders in maintaining independent community living and wellbeing. We also offer specialised support for Elders to support their cultural needs.
We also deliver residential aged care services through the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Flexible Aged Care Program.
How to get services
Aboriginal Community Services delivers care and support under the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Flexible Aged Care Program for people who identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander, as well as people who are accepted by the community.
Elders can be referred to the service either through self-referral, be referred by a local provider or via My Aged Care.
Elders can attend at or contact their local ACS centre to discuss their aged care options with our staff.
Local providers can contact ACS on your behalf to request services.
Following an aged care assessment, Elders can be referred to our Flexible Aged Care Program via My Aged Care.
Aboriginal Community Services will work with you to design a care plan based on your needs.
For Elders who are not referred via My Aged Care, Aboriginal Community Services will support Elders to have an aged care assessment.
Contact Aboriginal Community Services for more information on all of our services.
