Discover the types of care availableAgeing in Australia comes with more individual choice and control than ever before but it's hard to know what different supports are available and what the right type of support is for your needs and circumstances.
There are a number of aged care options, from support at home and short term care, such as respite, to independent living options or moving into an aged care home.
You can access supports through different initiatives and programs provided by a range of groups and organisations, such as aged care providers, local councils and community groups.
With all this choice, navigating what is best for you can be a challenge. In this section we explain the different types of care to help you get started.
