Low care

All aged care residences must provide specified levels of care and services to residents. The care services provided vary according to whether the resident has ‘low-care’ or ‘high-care’ needs. Low care is for clients who need some help, such as assistance with daily activities, personal care, and minor medical care, but do not have very complex ongoing care needs.

 The level of care you require will be determined by an aged care assessment, which helps to identify what level of support and care you need. 

Personal care and services
Assistance as required with the activities of daily living, such as

  • bathing
  • going to the toilet
  • eating
