Finding Services

Palliative Care Australia has developed the National Palliative Care Service Directory to help improve access to quality palliative care. You can use this to find a specialist palliative care service near you. Other types of services are also included in the database.

The National Health Services Directory is a comprehensive national directory of health services and provider information covering GPs, Pharmacies, Hospitals and Emergency Departments.

Health Direct provides safe, practical health information and advice and is supported by the governments of Australia.

The Australian Government’s My Aged Care contact centre and website provides access a range of aged care services.

The Aged Care Complaints Commissioner can help you resolve problems. 

Carer Gateway is a national online and phone service that provides practical information and resources to support carers. The interactive service finder helps carers connect to local support services.

You can find out about payments and services for older Australians who are retired, planning for retirement or considering working past age pension age at Centrelink. There is also information for carers. Carers can also find links to local carer organisations on the Carers Australia website.

Carer Directed Respite Care (CDRC) allows carers to take a break from their caring role and gives carers a greater say and more control over the design and delivery of respite services provided to them and the person they care for.

It's Your Life website principally provides Retirement Village Information, but also lists pay-for-service assistance in various states.
