Aged care calculation of your cost of care

If you’re thinking about accessing aged care services, we can tell you how much you’ll pay towards your aged care costs.

We’ve recently made some changes to how we present information about aged care cost of care.

My Aged Care is your starting point on your aged care journey. They’ll tell you if you can get government-funded aged care services.

If you’ve started your journey with My Aged Care and you’re thinking about accessing a Home Care Package or an aged care home, we can help.

We can tell you how much you’ll pay towards your aged care costs. To do this, you need to give us your income and asset information. We call these your financial details.

We may already have your financial details to work out how much you’ll pay. If we don’t have this information, you’ll need to give your financial details to us.

How much you’ll pay depends on:

  • your financial situation
  • the type of care you get
  • how much your aged care provider charges.

You can estimate your costs on the My Aged Care website, or apply for an aged care calculation of your cost of care anytime.

Find out more about Home Care Package costs and aged care home costs on the My Aged Care website.
