Australia has one of the highest quality aged care systems in the world. There are many options for seniors who need either part or full time care in Australia. Assistance can vary from additional part time help in your home, to around the clock care in your home or at an aged care facility. The Government, subject to assessment, can subsidise the associated costs of aged care. This assistance is only available to Australian citizens.
You are entitled to live a retirement village if you are over 55 years old and have retired from full time employment. Each state and territory in Australia has specific legislation regulating the operation of retirement villages. Legal arrangements and costs associated with retirement villages are often confusing- it is therefore recommended that you seek advice before entering in to any contracts.
