This video takes a look into the Australian Aged Care System.
Recent changes to the aged care system were introduced in July 2014 to provide older Australians more choice, more control and more support to older Australians to enable them to stay independent and in their own home and community longer.
Whilst senior people are asked to contribute to the costs of their care, if they can afford to do so, the Government has introduced greater flexibility over how to pay for accommodation in an aged care home. You can also find out more about aged care in our checklist – Entering Aged Care.
