Older Persons Community Services

​The Community Services within the Older Persons Health Service comprises of two interdisciplinary Community Services teams that serve defined geographical areas (north-east and south-west), the Adult Community Therapy Service, Community Rehabilitation Enablement & Support Team (CREST), the Community Stroke Rehabilitation Service, Medical and Physiotherapy Outpatients and the Bone Health Service.

Entry to the Community Services and Older Persons Mental Health Community services is through the Adult Community Referral ​Centre (formally known as Single Point of Entry) with referrals triaged to the appropriate team and discipline.

A Case Manager, linked to the referring GP practice, is identified for each referral. Interdisciplinary Teams are used to review and manage the response to clients requiring more than one discipline's input.
