NWRH is a registered provider of services under the following three My Aged Care programs:

If you are an older person aged 65 years or over (and 50 years and over for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people) who can mostly – but not completely – live and cope on your own and don’t yet need higher levels of support at home you may be eligible for this support.

If you want to stay in your own home as you get older, but need some help with things like cleaning and preparing meals or with transport so you can go shopping or attend appointments a Home Care Package may help you.
