Care Coordinators keep clients well and out of hospital
According to research presented through the MPHN, “supported self-management strategies” have been indicated as a means to close the divide in health inequalities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Marathon Health’s Integrated Team Care (ITC) program actively works to create tailored care coordination services to address this research.
Kate* a Boorowa local, says the service has been instrumental in assisting her care for her husband who has been diagnosed with Dementia.
“My husband had been having a lot of falls ... I gave up work to become a full time carer for my husband as I was worried about him being on his own,” Kate comments.
