Aged Care Systems Navigators - Victorian Trial sites

The Aged Care Navigator projects are testing different types of services and activities to help people learn more about Government supported aged care programs and how to access them. These trials are designed for people who:

  • have difficulty accessing services through existing channels and need additional support to understand, choose and access aged care services

  • have not yet accessed aged care services.

They will help people to:

  • Understand the aged care system, including what services are available to meet their needs and how to access them.

  • Engage with and access the aged care system, including connecting these people with MyAged Care and providing them with support to choose and access services.

Have a look at the courses available at Discovery College

December 29, 2018/

Discovery College is the ‘education programs’ arm of Headspace. https://headspace.org.au/headspace-centres/bentleigh/#more-info

The courses are created by people with varied experiences in mental health, who share their knowledge of what works. Every course is developed and delivered equally by both people with lived experience of mental health issues and health experts, and participants also have their say about what they want to learn. People from all sorts of backgrounds take part, like young people, clinicians and learning specialists.

In 2019 Discovery College will deliver two of their courses at our Frankston site – a 4-week Mindfulness course from Wed 27th Feb and a Nutrition session in April. There are also many other course topics being delivered across various sites in the southern region.

Caring for your own mental health is important for all carers
