My Aged Care

Visit the My Aged Care website to find information about how to access Australian Government–funded aged care services. You can apply for an assessment online and search for local aged care providers that meet your needs. You can also call Monday to Friday, 8 am to 8 pm, and Saturday, 10 am to 2 pm.

Improved payment arrangements

We will change how we pay subsidies to you. Instead of paying the full subsidy in advance each month, we will pay in arrears for services delivered. Find out how and when these changes will happen.

Unspent funds

Unspent funds are the amounts received by you that have not been spent on a person’s care. Find out what you can do to better manage a person's Home Care Package budget.
