Co.As.It. has the expertise and experience to be able to cater to the needs of the CALD (culturally and linguistically diverse) elderly person.
Our services are flexible and timely provided according to your individualised care plan. Our staff will support you in achieving your own well-being goals to allow you to continue to live in your own home for as long as possible.
To access our services you will be expected to undertake an assessment of your needs as well as pay a small contribution. No person will be refused a service if they are assessed as having financial difficulties.
All support services are provided following an assessment organised by My Aged Care (1800 200 422). Co.As.It. will provide assistance and guidance in organising this assessment.
