Aged and Disability Care

Aged and Disability Care in Australia

A wide range of assistance is readily accessible to older people with disabilities through the Home and Community Care (HACC) and Home Care Packages programs. Managing daily household tasks and activities can be challenging for older people with disabilities, necessitating external support. Aged and Disability Care assistance can be provided by family members, local support services under the Home and Community Care (HACC) Program, or Home Care Packages. In cases of more severe disabilities, residential aged care homes are available to offer additional support.

There is a spectrum of disability support services available, encompassing:

  • Mobility aids like walking frames or wheelchairs.
  • Allied health services, including occupational therapists, dietitians, and physiotherapists.
  • Short-term stays in residential aged care homes, as well as respite care
