Over 65s, NDIS and Aged Care funding

Navigating support funding for older Australians with a disability can be difficult. What happens if you are aged 65 and over and acquire a disability?

For this episode we’re going to be discussing supports for older Australians with a disability from the NDIS to My Aged Care Funding.

You’ll hear lived experiences from Susan who sustained a brain injury in 2005 and was able to get onto the NDIS before she turned 65 and Di, who is the wife and primary carer of her husband, Gary who sustained a spinal cord injury in 2019 at the age of 70.

They discuss and compare their experiences alongside Megan, who is a systemic advocate from SCIA’s Policy and Advocacy team.
