People aged 65 and over wishing to become clients of Mt Druitt Neighbour Aid, are asked to book an appointment with the centre Coordinator to determine which services might be made available to them. Prospective clients can self refer or be referred by members of their family, friends, neighbours, their treating doctor, other health professionals and My Aged Care. Once assessed, new clients are linked to a trained Volunteer.

Who provides the service?

Most Neighbour-Aid services are managed by a centre Coordinator who is responsible for the assessment of prospective clients and the on-going management of existing clients’ needs and services accessed by them.
 
Additionally, the Coordinator is responsible for the recruitment, training and support of volunteers who are carefully matched to clients according to their needs and interests.
 
The Mt Druitt Neighbour Aid services would not be available if not for the valuable contribution provided by Volunteers who generously give their time to undergo training and help out in their local community.
