Are you thinking about moving into residential aged care?

The Australian Government and the NDIA are committed to ensuring no younger people (under the age of 65) need to live in residential aged care unless they choose to.

If you have a home and living goal we’ll help you explore your options to pursue this goal. We’ll start by getting you to complete the Home and Living Supports Request Form .

This helps us understand your daily support needs. Then we can discuss the home and living supports that best meet those needs.

If you’re thinking about moving into residential aged care you’ll need to talk to your planner or Support Coordinator. They can help find other support options so you don’t have to move into residential aged care if you don’t want to.

Do you want to move out of residential aged care?

We can help you move out of residential aged care if you want to. We understand you might want to stay living where you are, but we are committed to making sure younger people don’t have to move into a residential aged care facility or stay in one if they don’t want to.

See the section on What if you want to move out of your residential aged care facility for more detail.
