ADACAS My Aged Care Information Service

ACT Disability, Aged and Carer Advocacy Service (ADACAS)

ADACAS is an independent not-for-profit advocacy organisation promoting and protecting the rights of people with a disability, people experiencing mental health issues, older people and their carers.

My Aged Care scheme

The Commonwealth Government supports older persons through the My Aged Care (MAC) scheme, and ADACAS assists Canberra and Queanbeyan residents, family members and carers to navigate the process.

ADACAS My Aged Care Information Service at the Early Morning Centre

The team from ADACAS will be visiting the Early Morning Centre once a month providing a free My Aged Care information service, to help guide guests through the MAC scheme.

Eligibility for My Aged Care

You need to be an Australian resident and aged over 65, (or aged over 50 if you are an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander) to be eligible for My Aged Care support.
