About the organisation
Based in Moonee Ponds, a vibrant and established community in Melbourne's north western metropolitan region, you will be working with elderly, frail and disabled clients, providing clients with services to allow them to remain living independently at home and feeling supported and socially connected. The Home Support Assessor is an exciting role undertaking the assessment of older people in their homes and supporting their access to needed services.
Home Support Assessors provide basic home-based face-to-face assessments of clients referred via the My Aged Care Gateway using the National Screening and Assessment Form (NSAF). Working with each client, the Home Support Assessor establishes goals specific to the client; develops appropriate strategies and actions, including referral to age care and non-aged care services; and develops a Support Plan. The Home Support Assessor completes the NSAF and matches and refers clients to appropriate service(s).
