When should I consider an aged care home rather than help at home?
If you feel unable to live independently at home – even with carer support or home care services to help you – you might consider moving into an aged care home.
If you haven’t already done so, you can contact My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 to arrange an assessment. If you are already receiving government-subsidised aged care services, you may need to be reassessed. You can talk to your current provider about reviewing your care plan.
