The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety has laid bare the failings of the aged care system. It is scandalous that older people are not properly looked after in their twilight years.
With your support, we can continue our fight for more home care packages and a better aged care system.
Aged care support is designed to help older Australians who require assistance in their own home or who can no longer live at home. Costs vary, based on the level of care required and the type of care you have been assessed as eligible for.
The wealth in your home is a valuable resource that could be used to improve your retirement funding and enhance your retirement lifestyle. It can provide you with greater flexibility and choice, to make decisions and importantly, allow you to stay in your family home.
