The team at Collaborate Now has over 20 years’ experience working with our aging community and people living with disability. Collaborate Now is family owned and operated.
We are local Maitland people with strong local connections. We are open minded and willing to listen. Our mission is to keep people healthy and supported in their own homes so they can have meaningful experiences and enjoy their lives.
Effective communication is key when working together. You won’t wait days for a response to your email or text and we understand things do go wrong and are flexible when needed.
Your annual or biannual plan reassessments will be confidently managed as are urgent changes in situation. We are transparent and reasonable with our fees and do not burn through your coordination funding and then leave you without support.
