AGED CARE

Aged care refers to older people who can no longer live independently or they need help to stay in their homes. People in aged care often face many challenges and our team at Amity Health can help to support these valued members of our community.

For many years we have provided quality aged care services in Albany and the Great Southern.

We partner with a number of residential aged care facilities providing Dietetics, Speech Pathology and in some cases Occupational Therapy services.

We also partner with organisations such as Clarence Estate and Silver Chain to provide these services under home care packages.

Our Integrated Primary Mental Health Care program, a fully-funded program for those with mild to moderate mental health issues, can support older people with adjustment issues due to life and health changes. Click on the button below to download the brochure.

Under our Fee for Service model, Amity Health can assist you or an older person you know, with their dietary needs, communication and activities of daily living.

All Healthcare Card holders are bulk-billed. Click on the button below to download our Fee for Service Flyer.
