If you care for someone with dementia, your doctor can help arrange an assessment for that person or you can arrange one directly through My Aged Care.
This assessment will work out what support the person needs, ranging from help with basic tasks at home to more intensive aged care services.
There are also care packages and other services that can be organised, based on individual need, which you can access to help you in your caring role. For more information, visit the My Aged Care website.
