Established in 1995 Linkcare Australia Pty. Ltd., is a well-known and trusted social work company providing private hospitals throughout the Melbourne Metropolitan region with generic social work and discharge planning services and in particular with aged care related transfers to the supported residential care sector.
Our work places us at the interface between private hospitals and the supported residential care (nursing homes) sectors. We ensure a smooth transition for elderly clients from acute care into residential care in a sensitive, timely manner.
Linkcare also provides Individual Placement Services to elderly clients and their carers in the community. Clients self-refer for assistance in locating and accessing suitable aged care facilities. The Linkcare worker provides all the financial information, assessment requirements and the lodgement of all necessary paperwork.
We have also provided social work services to public hospitals throughout regional Victoria, and one major public rehabilitation service in Melbourne.
