Why register? Who is My Aged Care designed for?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funded supports for individuals living with a disability. However, eligibility for the NDIS is limited to people under the age of 65.

If you are aged 65 or older, funded supports are accessed through the aged care system. Registering with My Aged Care is a requirement for accessing these funded supports.

When you register with My Aged Care, a record is created with a summary of your situation. As you progress through an aged care assessment towards receiving services, your summary will be shared with the people involved in coordinating your support, so you don’t have to keep repeating your story to different people.

What to expect Understanding the process.

After you’ve registered with My Aged Care, an aged care assessor from your local area will make an appointment to visit you at home. They will have a conversation with you to gain a further understanding of your situation and the supports you rely on.

Together, you will come up with a support plan, and your assessor will begin connecting you with any low-level funded supports you’ll need to remain independent. You can choose which service providers you want to be referred to, including Guide Dogs Victoria!

Low-level funded supports are generally provided at a subsidised rate, and some providers may ask for a co-payment from you. Services from Guide Dogs Victoria do not incur co-payments.
