For most people, living independently in your own home as you age is what you want. But sometimes you might need some help with daily tasks that you can no longer manage as well on your own.
For example, you might need help with home maintenance, such as changing light bulbs. You might also need minor aids and equipment, like a walking frame, to help you get around your home safely and easily. Or you might need help with tasks like dressing or preparing meals. As you get older, you may also need some level of nursing care to stay in your own home.
Aged care services are designed with the aim of meeting your changing needs as you get older.
