There are a number of things that will be looked at during an assessment process to ensure that everyone receives the care and support they need. The My Aged Care Assessor will look at things like:
Your age – to be eligible you need to be an older Australian (generally 65 years or older) or a younger person with an ageing related illness (like early onset dementia).
Your living arrangements and the support you currently receive from family and friends.
What help or support you may require in order to continue living independently.
