Population Health

Population health refers to the health status, health factors and health outcomes within a group of people. Bungree’s Population Health team works to address health factors in order to improve health outcomes for Aboriginal people on the Central Coast.

Services offered under Bungree’s Population Health team include the Aboriginal Go4Fun Program and the Care Finder Program (commencing January 2023).

Care Finder Program

Commencing January 2023, Bungree’s Care Finder Program provides specialist and intensive assistance to help ageing and older people understand, navigate and access aged care and connect with other relevant supports in the community.

Care Finder program services are well suited to assist community members who may be socially isolated, have communication barriers, have difficulty processing information or those who are hesitant to engage with aged care.
