Residential Aged Care

Residential aged care provides live-in care for people requiring full time assistance. Care planning is an important part of care and care needs can change over time. Care planning can also include palliative care.

My Aged Care has useful information on types of care as well as information on how to find an aged care home. 

When you are looking for a suitable aged care home it is useful to visit the facility and meet staff. My Aged Care has put together a list of questions you may want to think about and talk about during your visit.

On these pages you will find information about entering residential aged care, communicating with staff, and palliative care needs. For detailed information about the care you or the person entering residential aged care can expect, you should talk to the facility concerned.
