How to apply for assistance

If you wish to access support service you will need to apply and participate in an assessment. You can apply for assistance yourself, or with consent, a relative, friend, nurse or general practitioner can also apply on your behalf.

We provide flexible, responsive and high quality care to assist you to maintain your optimum level of independence.

Are you 65 years or older?

If you are 65 years or older and need support at home, you need to register with My Aged Care. My Aged Care is the start point to access Australian Government funded services. It is designed to give people more choice, more control and easier access to a full range of aged care services.

My Aged Care will send a referral for an assessment and a member of an assessment team will then be in touch with you to arrange a home support assessment.
