Find a provider
There's a lot to consider when you are selecting an organisation to provide you with aged care services. This section helps you find the services in your area and steps you through what to consider.
Start by finding services in your area
If you haven't been assessed yet, find out how to apply for aged care services, or read more about finding a provider below.
There are four key things to consider when you are looking to set up an aged care service: the service, costs, availability, and quality. There may also be situations where you need or prefer to use a private aged care provider. It’s important to find the right match for you.
How to find out what it will cost
How much you pay depends on the type of help you need and the specific services you receive. This section explains how to work out what you might need to pay.
What else do people ask at this step?
Do I need an income and assets assessment?
If you want the government to contribute to the costs of your care, you will need to provide your Home Care Package provider or aged care home with an assessment letter. Find out if you need one and apply now.
How do I know if there are any quality of care issues with an aged care home I’m considering?
The government assesses all aged care homes against regulations and quality standards. The assessment results are shown in the profile of each provider in the Find a provider search. You can read more about how we assess quality.
