WHO PAYS FOR SERVICES?
The Australian Government subsidises many different types of Aged Care Services. You are expected to contribute to the cost if you can.
How much you pay may depend on: your financial situation; the number and types of services you receive; and the service provider.
The Program provides a subsidy towards a package of care, services and case management to meet your personal needs.
A list of service costs is available on request.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
Each program has broad eligibility criteria and an assessment process to determine your needs and eligibility. This process helps to ensure everyone receives the care and support they need.
Eligibility requirements may include minimum aged and a decreased ability to perform basic daily living tasks without extra help.
