What is Aged Care ?

Support with daily living and health care services at home or moving into a retirement village or residential aged care (nursing home) is often referred to as ‘aged care’.  Is it for you? What is the best choice for your situation?

You, or someone you know, might be facing a situation where the family home is now too big to maintain; you are caring more for your partner and would like some support; you can no longer manage daily tasks and living at home is no longer a safe or practical option.

In this case, aged care services might be for you.

Realising you may need support can be a stressful time that involves understanding what services are available, their costs and how you access them.
