5. Finish your short-term restorative care

After you have been assessed as eligible for short-term restorative care, follow this pathway:

Your service provider will help you to work out what should be in place when your short-term restorative care ends. They will provide you with detailed information about the care you have had that will help with any future assessment you may have.

If you need more care at the end of your short-term restorative care, your service provider must work with you to set up services to support you, or refer you back to My Aged Care for a support plan review or a new assessment. If you will have to wait for an assessment, your provider must make sure you have access to services while you wait.

You can call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 to speak with someone about ongoing or other types of care.
