Social Support - Technology

Keeping you connected to family and friends

While nothing beats seeing someone face to face, the internet offers different ways to stay in touch with family and friends, whether they are near or far. With the simple push of a button, it can open up special family milestones, such as a grandchild’s first steps or a relative’s birthday.

It can also help you to find helpful information, catch up on the news, pay bills or find a new scrabble partner, all from the comfort of your own armchair. Read our article that gives you five reasons you should get online.

But knowing where to start can be a bit daunting. That’s why we have designed Let’s Connect, a social technology programme that supports you every step of the way.

We take special pride in the personal “one on one” support we provide, with an easy-to-use device alongside personal coaching in the comfort of your own home, plus practical advice and technical support over the phone from your expert KinCare coach.

Funding Aged Care

The Commonwealth Government provides two types of subsidy to help fully, or partially fund in home support services. Your eligibility for these subsidies will depend on your personal circumstances. If you are not eligible to receive government funding, you can still access KinCare services privately.
