Australian Regional and Remote Community Services (ARRCS) provides aged care and community services in the Northern Territory.
Australian Regional and Remote Community Services (ARRCS) was established in July 2014 and provides aged care and community services in the Northern Territory. The services were previously managed by Frontier Services.
ARRCS operates eight residential care facilities with a combined capacity of 385 beds, and 11 community care programs in Darwin, Alice Springs, Tennant Creek, Katherine, Mutitjulu and Docker River. Some of the services are specifically for Indigenous Australians.
ARRCS provides Territorians with support that is responsive to people’s needs now and as their circumstances change.
These services are available to older people, people with a disability, patients discharged from hospital or following a visit to a GP, and individuals and carers who are in need of support.
People receive support in their homes, in the community, in our community care centres and residential aged care facilities.
ARRCS is more than an aged care provider. It is an integral part of the community, recruiting staff and volunteers from local areas and partnering with other community service providers, government departments and agencies, hospitals and GPs.
