The Department of Health and Human Services recently undertook an Expression of Interest process to source the next provider for the Regional Assessment Service (RAS), with Lyndoch Living the successful applicant. 

Lyndoch Living will commence delivering the Regional Assessment Service from July 1, 2021.

Lyndoch Living currently delivers the Aged Care Assessment Service, which provides assessment, information, advice and assistance to frail older people aged 65 and over or Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 50 and over, who want to remain at home or who are considering living in an aged care home.

The RAS receives referrals through My Aged Care and undertakes face-to-face assessments of individuals wishing to access support to remain living at home.

The RAS is for people 65 years and over, or 50 years and over for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

“Lyndoch Living is excited about having the opportunity to deliver the Regional Assessment Service in the Warrnambool area. The RAS will complement the existing Aged Care Assessment Service and showcase what an integrated Assessment service will look like moving forward,” Lyndoch Living Chief Executive Officer Doreen Power said

Warrnambool City Council will cease delivering the Regional Assessment Service (RAS) on behalf of the Commonwealth and Victorian governments as of June 30, 2021.

“Council and Lyndoch have a positive working relationship which will allow for a smooth transition between providers of the service,” Council Director Community Development Vikki King said.
