Mary: It’s a good place to begin at the beginning.

My name is Mary. We landed in 1969, with 13 bags, that trunk and nothing else, just us.

I was diagnosed in January last year with Parkinson’s, so you just adjust to that.

The care package is assessed on your income, they assess you by levels of your need and I’m a Level Two.

It’s such a good system. Anything you want to know about what’s going on or what is available to you is on the My Aged Care website.
