Government Funded Services
The Australian Government has launched My Aged Care which is is a national online and phone service that provides practical information and resources to support older people. The interactive service finder helps carers connect to local support services. This is the new “Gateway” to Aged care services.
The Australian Government offers a range of services that can give you extra help at home. These services include domestic assistance, personal care, meal services and nursing care.
Residential aged care is for older people, who for a variety of reasons, can no longer live at home. Those reasons can include illness, disability, bereavement, an emergency, the changing needs of their carer, family or friends or because it is no longer possible to manage at home
