Overall Rating: 8 out of 10 Based on 1 Review

Aged Care Australia is the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing’s online source of information about aged care. Aged Care Australia provides the community with access to government and non-government information and services. It will help the community to make informed decisions about aged care options for themselves and their family members.

To help consumers navigate this website, it has been arranged based on five questions:

  1. Need to know where to start?
  2. Need help staying at home?
  3. Need help with aged care homes?
  4. Need help for carers and family? and
  5. Need help with health?

This client focussed approach to the website greatly enhances the navigation and usability – coupled with content that has been carefully written in a consumer-friendly voice, this will assist consumer’s needs and understanding of the aged care system in Australia.

    Pros:

    It's a very useful site with comprehensive information on who you need to refer to and the beginning steps to get into aged care. The people they refer you to will give you even more information but they do help to break the steps down to manageable steps.

    Cons:

    There is SO much information to digest but at least this site trys to help you - but nonetheless it can get overwhelming at times. Be prepared that you can't just refer to this website. You will still need to make many phone calls and complete many forms in this process.

    Overall:

    For anyone who has to go down the aged care path, depending on your specific circumstances it can take at least a couple of months to get qualified and then longer to find a home, so I would recommend you use this Aged Care Australia website as it's a really good resource to help you with all the steps.
