When it comes time to accessing government funded aged care services all roads converge on My Aged Care which is the starting point for aged care in Australia.
This is the conversation that you know you need to have, but feel trepidations that it is not going to end well, with uncertainty and emotions running high and sometimes great stakes on the line.
The falls risk assessment is designed to proactively review your home and health status with the intent of identifying possible risks that may contribute to falls and most importantly giving you a plan to manage the identified risks.
You have received your letter from the government advising that you are now able to access a home care package, or maybe you have only just had an assessment and are now on the waiting list but you need a strategy to hold everything together while you wait for a package.
Your care needs are changing; maybe there was a fall with a fracture, maybe the wait for an appropriate level HCP is becoming unsustainable.
