The Australian Government subsidises many different types of aged care services in Australia.
The goverment's My Aged Care team can give advice over the phone, as well as organise a face-to-face assessment in your own home by Aged Care Assessment specialists.
You may be eligible for government support. If you don't want to use government subsidies or aren't eligible to do so, the assessment process can still help you to understand the type and level of care you need.
It's important to note that to move in or to get respite care in a government-subsidised aged care home you must be assessed first.
