Adult Community Referral Centre (ACRC)

The Adult Community Referral Centre (ACRC) is the gateway to services provided by the Older Persons Health and Rehabilitation Community teams.

Some subsidised services are available to help people remain independent and in their own home. You can be referred to Adult Community Referral Centre (ACRC) through your general practice (GP).

If you are having difficulty with day to day tasks around the home, cooking, or with personal care please discuss this with your GP who will make a referral to the Needs Assessment Team (NASC), via ACRC.

Dedicated, caring teams at Older Persons Health and Rehabilitation work with adults and other community support providers to provide home support and psychiatric/geriatric services including assessment, treatment and rehabilitation.
