15 Aged Care

Aged Care Introduction

As we reach our elderly years there may come a time when we need to consider the prospect of asking for help with regards to looking after ourselves. The help may come from family members and friends as well as through the delivery of aged care services by an aged care service provider.

Aged care services are designed with the aim of meeting your changing needs as you get older and can range from assistance with daily tasks to nursing care whilst still residing in your own home or alternatively in a residential aged care facility.

By the end of the module, you'll be able to understand:

  • The different types of aged care services available, your eligibility, the costs involved and how to go about organising them;
  • The estate planning issues around aged care planning; and
  • The financial assistance available to carers.
