Aged care

This page is for all primary care health professionals working with patients, their carers and families in aged care or transitioning to aged care and to connect aged care providers, primary care providers, and hospital and health services for the benefit of those in care.

Brisbane South PHN recognises that access to health services is important for the quality of life of older people.

Older adults are high users of acute services, so ensuring primary care services are accessible, available and affordable helps improve quality of life.

This section includes details of aged care initiatives supported by Brisbane South PHN and resources for healthcare providers.

What Brisbane South PHN is doing

In aged care, our programs continue to support the elderly, their families and healthcare providers. Our programs include:


Carer gateway

The Carer Gateway is a national online and phone service that provides practical information and resources to carers and health professionals who work with patients and carers.

The interactive service finder helps carers connect to local support services, and the site includes a section for Aboriginal and Torres strait Islander people in addition to the culturally and linguistically diverse people.
