Delivering aged and disability care programs
This program delivers aged and disability care services in the five Barkly Regional Council communities of Ali Curung, Ampilatwatja, Alpurrurulam, Arlparra and Elliott. To assist in the delivery of optimum care to its residents Barkly Regional Council works collaboratively and in partnership with other agencies in the area.
The Aged and Disabilities program is committed to maintaining strong relationship building and upgrades to facility and operations that support the delivery and facilitation of this important service. As part of Council's commitment to transparency and continual improvement of services, the program recently undertook Quality Assurance and received positive feedback and reports. These services are now involved in a pilot quality audit conducted by the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) for 2017-18.
