September is Dementia Awareness Month
Carers are invited to share their experiences of the NDIS in a focus group with other carers, hosted by CarersNSW.
An alliance of 48 aged care groups will today launch a national campaign to put aged care on the election agenda after silence from the major parties on how they will address the aged care needs of older Australians. The Australians Deserve to Age Well campaign www.agewellcampaign.com.au will target all political parties, calling for an end to the ‘aged care lottery’ so that older people no longer have to wait for months to receive the care they need.
For most people, growing older means there are times you find it difficult to manage day-to-day living activities. You may need help, or you may be caring for a family member or a friend who needs help, but you just don’t know where to start or what help you can get.
There are different types of aged care services to support you, whatever your needs. When you call My Aged Care, our contact centre staff will ask you questions to help us understand your needs.

Legislation passed in the Senate yesterday giving older Australians more choice about their home care services is a very welcome improvement to our aged care system, leading seniors advocate COTA Australia said today.
COTA Chief Executive Ian Yates said the new provisions will for the first time allow older people to choose their services and who provides them, rather than having services determined for them.
The new legislation will allow people who are unhappy with the services they are receiving, or who need to relocate out of the area, to change providers and keep their package.
Assistant Minister for Social Services, Alan Tudge today announced the commencement of a new service to assist carers. Carer Gateway will make it easier for carers to find information, practical advice and services to support them in their caring role.
Carer Gateway guides carers to the support and resources they need through a website, phone service and service finder.
Up to now, carers have been searching for services through a number of often confusing pathways across the disability, community mental health and aged care sectors.
