A NEW era in aged care started last week and gives senior Australians greater flexibility around the help they can get while remaining in their own home.
The home care overhaul offers more choice, and is also expected to deliver better value for money than the previous system, which critics say was rife with rip-offs.

But with choice comes complexity, so knowing where to start — and what you may be entitled to — is crucial.
Many seniors, as well as their adult children who are helping them out, may not know that they could receive financial assistance towards home care services such as nursing, domestic help, home modification, grocery shopping, physiotherapy and podiatry.
