Residential Aged care (RAC) Support Coordination Services

Are you living in Residential Aged Care?

We're excited to announce that we're collaborating with the Summer Foundation to provide a free service for people under the age of 65 living in Residential Aged Care (RAC).

Our RAC Service Coordinator can support you to become better informed about your NDIS funding and support that may:

  • Increase your ability to participate in the community
  • Ensure you have equipment and therapy to support your quality of life
  • Support the exploration of moving out of RAC and into the community

  • 36% of housing seekers indicated that they need support 24 hours a day
  • More than two-fifths of all seekers wished to live alone.
  • Over half of the seekers (57%) would like to move immediately, suggesting a high demand for properties that are immediately available to move into
