What is the wait time for services?
It depends on what services you need and where you are. Commonwealth Home Support Programme services depend on the availability of providers in your area, while the wait time for approved Home Care Packages can be more than 12 months. Those with urgent needs are also prioritised to receive services.
For aged care homes, it depends mainly on the waitlist for a room at your preferred home. If you need emergency services, call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 and we can work with you to find more immediate options.
