Frequently Asked Questions

The Australian Government provides financial support to assist people to receive aged care services in their own home and at centre-based facilities. Your eligibility will determine the support you can receive with funding support assigned based on the outcome of your assessment. 

You may have recently noticed that your loved one is struggling with daily activities around their home or has a physical ailment that is impacting them on a more regular basis. Changes like these can be hard for people to accept, however having a conversation about how they are feeling and asking if they require any help, is a great start.

There are many services available to you when you receive funding approval.  

You can access several services or care under a variety of programs offered by My Aged Care, the National Disability Insurance Scheme and The Department of Veteran Affairs.  

When it comes to broaching the subject of home care services with a loved one, it’s important to remind them that asking for help does not mean they will lose their independence. Seeking assistance enables people to stay safe and well in their home for longer.  

Help in the home can start with something small, such as transport for groceries, or domestic assistance for cleaning once a week. As their requirements change, services can be altered or increased. More importantly, starting the assessment process for My Aged Care as early as possible means your loved one is already in the system, making it easier for re-assessment if there comes a time when they unexpectedly need more assistance at home (for example, post-hospital care).
