My Aged Care

My Aged Care is your starting point to access government-funded aged care services.

Whatever your situation, specific needs, or background, they can help you understand what types of services are available - from services that help you live independently at home to short-term care that helps you get back on your feet, to moving into an aged care home when you can no longer live at home.

Once you have the information you need, you can call them to discuss your needs and find out if you require an assessment. If you do, an assessor will come to your home for a face-to-face assessment to work out what services you are eligible for.

My Aged Care can also help you estimate the fees you may have to pay, and what service providers are available near you.

Wherever you are on your aged care journey, My Aged Care can help you get started.

Dementia Awareness Resources

In Australia, limited awareness of dementia in people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds often results in delayed diagnosis, poorer prognosis, and a higher burden of care on families and health systems.

Moving Pictures, an innovative multi-media project, aims to change this through the production of short films co-produced with people from CALD backgrounds. The Moving Pictures team has so far produced 27 short films in 9 different linguistic communities. 

For each language, there are three films: Detection and Diagnosis, Navigating Care, and the Carer Journey. The Moving Pictures films are based on the stories and lived experiences of carers of people living with dementia, and the expert views of key service providers, all videos feature subtitles in English. 

In addition to the short films, the team has developed comics to complement the films. The Moving Pictures comics are available on-line, but can also be ordered free of charge directly from the Moving Pictures website using the order form

Videos and comics are available in the following languages: 

عربى Arabic                     廣東話 Cantonese                     Ελληνικά Greek                     हिंदी Hindi                     Italiano Italian       
普通话 Mandarin           Español Spanish                       தமிழ் Tamil                          Tiếng Việt Vietnamese
