In the Northern Territory, the Aged Care Navigators (ACN) program provides information and support for seniors, their families and friends about aged care services. However, since 3 January 2023* the service is delivered with preference given to currently financial COTA NT Members. (Members may be seeking support for their own care, that of a family member or person they care for.)
The program is delivered by COTA NT (also known as Council on the Ageing – Northern Territory) and aims to:
Contact an Aged Care Navigator directly to make an appointment (face to face, telephone or web conferencing).
Or call COTA NT head office on (08) 8941 1004. We are here to help you navigate and access the aged care system.
*In December 2022, COTA NT was unsuccessful in its bid to win a Care Finder tender through the Northern Territory Primary Health Network (NT-PHN). Care Finder has superseded the Aged Care Navigator Program. However, COTA NT has made the decision to continue its support of Territory seniors needing help to access the aged care system specifically. Due to resource limitations, the service is offered to COTA NT Members preferentially over other community members (COTA NT membership is available to any Territorian aged 50+).
