As you get older, staying independent and living in your own home may become more challenging.
Sometimes making changes to your home or using assistive technology can allow you to stay safe at home and enable you to keep doing the things you love. LifeTec is here to help you live your potential.
Here at LifeTec, we provide support services for older Australians. We can provide assistance on choosing the right assistive technology for you, coordinating home modifications and simple changes to your living environment. These services are aimed at enhancing your safety and wellbeing as well as keeping you socially connected and actively participating in the community.
Are you an older person who doesn’t qualify for a funding package or a self-funded retiree and need some help navigating what Assistive Technology is best for your independence?
LifeTec has developed a short 1 hour low cost consultation service to help you get started on your Assistive Technology journey. Eligible My Aged Care consumers can receive up to $500 per year to purchase AT.
If your application is successful, a My Aged Care assessor will contact you to arrange a face-to-face assessment. The assessment will determine exactly what you need and services available to you.
Once you have a referral from My Aged Care, your Service with LifeTec can start!
LifeTec can work with you to find the assistive technologies that are best suited for you based on your identified needs.
