Navigating the aged care system in Australia can be daunting, often described as a minefield. It’s a journey filled with numerous decisions and steps, where making the right choices at the right time is crucial. For many, this process can be overwhelming, leading to confusion and frustration. is where Care Finders come in. They play an essential role in guiding older people through this complex system, ensuring they make informed decisions about their care.
Care Finder services target older Australians, people over 65 years of age (or 55 years for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people) who need intensive support to interact with My Aged Care, access aged care services, and find other relevant supports in the community. For example, applying for suitable housing opportunities. This includes those who are eligible for aged care services and require additional support due to various reasons, such as cognitive difficulties, lack of family support, or other challenges. Care Finders ensure that these individuals receive the personalised care and attention they need.
At Carexcell, we work with eligible people to help them access appropriate housing. Carexcell is also able to support eligible people to access My Aged Care to establish needed supports in their new housing. Our approach is centred around understanding each individual’s unique needs and preferences. We believe in providing personalised support, ensuring that the elderly in our community receive the best possible care tailored to their specific circumstances.

We assist in demystifying the aged care system, helping clients understand the various services available to them and ensuring that they can make informed choices that best suit their situation.
One key aspect of our service involves comprehensive assessments. Before discussing home care package options, we gather relevant information about each older person’s functional ability, cognition, social, and community life aspects. This holistic assessment is crucial in creating a care plan that reflects their current needs, especially considering that needs may change over time while waiting for service allocation.
Our team reviews previous assessments, such as those done by Aged Care Assessment Teams (ACAT), and updates them to reflect any changes. This ensures that when it’s time to choose a home care package provider, the decision is based on the most current and accurate understanding of the individual’s needs.
