Support for adults with chronic conditions
Adults who face daily challenges caused by a chronic health condition or life-limiting illness may benefit from our specialised program designed to help improve quality of life.
The Adults with Chronic Conditions program is offered to adults aged 18–65 years of age and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people under 50 years of age who face significant functional limitations caused by their health.
The program offers a range of services, both long and short-term, to help build your independence and improve your quality of life.
We support a range of conditions and diagnoses and consider your personal medical situation, ability to self-manage your condition and your access to support networks to create a personalised care plan for you.
This can include:
- allied health therapy (like physiotherapy, occupational therapy, podiatry or speech therapy), including help accessing equipment or home modifications
- a short-term rehabilitation service to help you maintain or improve your independence
- long-term personal support services such as social support, domestic assistance, personal care and respite
- dedicated end-of-life care, provided in partnership with the palliative care sector, if required.
The program also considers specific eligibility or priority criteria that apply to you. Our process of assessment, goal-setting and planning means you receive the services you need to meet your goals and preferences.
