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 can apply for a My Aged Care assessment online at https://www.myagedcare.gov.au/assessment/apply-online
Allow 20 minutes to complete the application. Need a hand? Your application can be completed for you by a trusted representative nominated by you. Simply advise their details during the application process. You will need your Medicare card for the application where they will check your eligibility, capture your contact details, and confirm who the assessor should call to arrange the assessment.
If you are not eligible for aged care support, other financial support programmes include:
- National Disability Insurance Scheme - https://www.ndis.gov.au/
- Department of Veteran Affairs - https://www.dva.gov.au/
