My Aged Care

The My Aged Care is the starting point to access Australian Government funded services for aged care. My Aged Care can help you find out about:

  • Type of aged care services available
  • Your eligibility for services
  • Service providers in your area
  • Costs you may need to pay
  • Quality in aged care
  • Advocacy services
  • How to make a complaint

Home care packages help you or your loved one stay at home longer by providing support where it's needed. Each eligible senior will be allocated a home care package that offers the right level of support for their assessed care needs. However a persons needs often change over time, so it's important to reassess whether an existing home care package is meeting your needs or those of your loved one as time goes by.

Even if you or a loved one have been previously denied a package, you can apply for a home care package again. This is because a person may become eligible if their care needs change. Reassessment can ensure you or your loved one can access the right level of care at all times.
