15 Aged Care

Aged Care Services – Residential Aged Care

As you age, you may find that you are unable to continue residing at home due to a variety of reasons. For example, an illness, a disability, an emergency, or because of the needs of your family, friends or carer.

If this situation presents itself, you may still find that you need assistance with personal care, transport, domestic care, meal preparation and nursing care. In this instance, a residential aged care facility may assist you to receive the support that you need to continue living as independently as possible.

Residential aged care can be permanent or short-term care. Short-term care in an aged care home is called residential respite care.
