Aged Care Navigator Service

Aged care can be complex and overwhelming. If you need some hands-on support, you’ve come to the right place.

Founded in South Australia in 1952, ACH Group has spent the last 65 years supporting older people to live well. In doing so, we’ve offered peace of mind to them, and their family members.

At ACH Group we believe that growing older is a journey, and we think about it as turning a new page.  Sometimes with change comes new challenges.

 
Are you worried about someone you know? Have you noticed some changes?

You might have noticed they:

  • Haven’t been keeping up with the housework
  • Seem a bit unsteady on their feet or have had a fall
  • Are not getting out and about as much
  • Don’t seem to be eating enough, and may have lost weight for no apparent reason
  • Seem a bit confused sometimes, or getting forgetful
  • Have had a near–miss while driving
  • Are having trouble keeping track of time
  • Are not attending to their mail
  • Have missed a few appointments.

If you’ve noticed one or a number of these things, it could be a sign that some help and support could make a difference. ACH Group’s Aged Care Navigator Service can help.

 
Who could benefit from the Aged Care Navigator Service?

With experienced professionals we can help take the worry away by working with you and helping you to understand the choices available. If you live interstate, are time-poor, or just can’t spend the time you would like with your loved one, we’re here to help.

 
What type of questions do you assist with?

We can help you answer questions such as:

  • Can my loved one keep living at home?
  • What services are available?
  • How do we choose the services that suit?
  • How are services accessed?
  • How are services secured?
  • How are services paid for?
  • What are the legal and financial implications?

Beyond navigating the services that are available, we can also do the work on your behalf to secure services delivered at home, or assist with transitioning to residential care.

Meet Jodie Roberts – ACH Group's Dementia Co-Design Manager who has been with ACH Group for 13 years.

Jodie loves that her role makes a difference in the quality of life for a person living with dementia and their carers. Her workday includes providing dementia behaviour support services at ACH Group's residential care homes, educating staff and families about best practice dementia care, and designing training content that is evidence-based, leading-edge and engaging.

Jodie shared, "I am extremely fortunate to work very closely with our customers, their families, and staff which keeps me connected to the experiences people have in residential care. I am then able to share their experiences with colleagues so that we can co-design products and services that meet those needs."

One thing about Jodie you may not know is she is an absolute car enthusiast, in particular Holden's and early model Commodores. Jodie and her husband belong to an SA car club and both drive matching white early Commodore station wagons!

What a wonderful way to start the week!
Every Monday morning, Tai Chi enthusiast Brian leads a class for fellow residents at ACH Group's St Georges Court retirement living community. Tai Chi is a moving meditation and features slowed down martial arts movements.
Brian and his wife have practiced and taught Tai Chi for 20 years, and after residents saw them practicing in their front yard the idea was sparked for classes to take place in St Georges' community hub. Brian said a core group of about 12 from St Georges and neighbouring retirement living communities attend the sessions.
“Everyone in the session is really enjoying it. There are wonderful health benefits that come with Tai Chi - improving mobility, balance and general fitness,” he said. “The classes are free, I’m passionate about doing something for our community, and when the COVID-19 restrictions allow, we all enjoy a cup of tea after.”
