My Aged Care (myagedcare.gov.au) is the Australian Government’s entry point to learn about different types of care and access services and activities to help you continue living independently at home.
The Crows Nest Centre receives Commonwealth Home Support Programme funding to help us provide many of our services and activities for older people.
In order to access these services and activities, you need to register with My Aged Care. We can assist you with this or you can call My Aged Care direct on 1800 200 422 or apply online. My Aged Care will ask you some questions and arrange an assessment.
