NDIS and My Aged Care compared
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) supports people under the age of 65, while the Aged Care system is geared towards supporting people over 65.
The purpose of the NDIS is to provide people who have a disability with greater choice, individualised support and the flexibility to manage these supports with the goal of living an ordinary life.
My Aged Care is a web site that is the main entry point to the aged care system in Australia.
My Aged Care aims to make it easier for older people, their families, and carers to access information on ageing and aged care, have their needs assessed, and be supported to find and access services.
