Wrap Around Care
Amaranth’s model of care recognises that not just one person or one profession can offer all the supportive needs of each individual, their family and their caregivers. An integrated team of key health professionals and other services and therapies, are coordinated and maintained through the individual’s care journey and continues to support the family in bereavement.
This model of care is unique to Amaranth Foundation.
Amaranth Foundation was founded in 2009 in response to an identified need in rural and regional communities for an organisation to identify and respond to the social, emotional, psychological and existential needs of people living with advanced chronic and life limiting illness, their families and care givers.
Amaranth has its main office in Corowa and outreach clinics across the Riverina, including Wagga Wagga, Cootamundra, Junee, Temora, Coolamon, Tumut, Adelong, Brungle, Tumbarumba, Albury/Wodonga, Chiltern, Wangaratta, Corowa, Leeton, Narrandera, Griffith, Mulwala and Howlong.
HOW PEOPLE LIVE MATTERS
Amaranth Foundation employs accredited Mental Health Social Workers as key clinicians, who are accredited with Medicare and DVA in the provision of a variety of evidence based therapeutic interventions appropriate for people living with advanced chronic and terminal illnesses, their families and care givers.
Working under the Commonwealth funded Medicare system, utilising the Chronic Disease and Better Access to Mental Health initiatives, Amaranth Social Workers are able to work collaboratively with the person’s general practitioner, their local multidisciplinary health care team, community care services and a host of other community and rehabilitative services. We bulk bill for all our services, if a referral has been received from the person’s general practitioner or specialist.
Our Staff & Volunteers
The staff and volunteers are some of the most hard working and devoted people striving to provide the best service to all clients who use the services provided at Amaranth.
