Am I qualified for government-funded aged care?
Eligibility hinges on factors such as your health, home management, and existing support. You could qualify for aged care services if you have:
- observed a shift in your abilities or memory
- been diagnosed with a medical condition or faced reduced mobility
- undergone changes in family care arrangements
- experienced a recent fall or hospital admission,
- and are 65 years or older (50 years or older for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander individuals).
Step 1: Understanding your needs.
As you embark on your aged care journey, your first step involves getting in touch with us and exploring available services that aid in maintaining your independence at home or understanding what to expect in an aged care facility. This may involve looking into:
Help at Home:
Living independently in your own home may pose challenges as you age. If you find tasks becoming more difficult, seeking assistance is a viable option.
Whether recovering from a hospital stay or needing support during a family carer's absence, short-term care provides assistance in managing life's disruptions.
Aged Care Homes:
If living independently at home becomes challenging, even with carer support or home care services, transitioning to an aged care home may be a suitable option to consider.
Step 2: Your Eligibility/Assessment
At the onset of your aged care journey, a common inquiry is, "How can I access government-subsidised aged care services?"
Eligibility may apply if you've observed changes in your abilities or memory, received a medical diagnosis or experienced reduced mobility, undergone alterations in family care arrangements, or encountered a recent fall or hospital admission.
To determine eligibility, the initial step involves a personal assessment typically conducted in your home by a specialist selected by Aus Care CS.
Following your assessment, you will be informed of your eligibility for government-funded services and, if applicable, the specific services for which you qualify.
