Passionate About Helping
At Allied Aged Care, we are a registered NDIS physiotherapy and occupational therapy provider. We are passionate about helping those with disabilities be in control and choose the services and equipment they need to lead their best lives.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme has been a huge change, the biggest shakeup to our health system since Medicare was introduced. Many of our clients are very glad to have the NDIS available in rural regions where those with disabilities could previously not access services and equipment. We also have members of our Allied Aged Care team or their families with disabilities now benefiting from the NDIS.
We have already seen a huge benefit from our therapy as clients are achieving better outcomes.

Younger People In Aged Care
Many do not know that there are a lot of younger clients with disabilities currently living in nursing homes (Residential Aged Care facilities) or having Home care packages in the community.
As of 30 September 2018, the Department of Health reported there were 5,905 people aged under 65 years of age living in residential aged care facilities across Australia.
It is generally agreed by the Australian government and communities that those under 65 should not be in a nursing home unless there are no other options.
The Australian Government is committed to minimising the need for younger people aged under 65 years of age to live in aged care facilities.
In some areas of Australia, residential aged care has been the only supported accommodation. Aged care system is designed to support the needs of older people, and is not equipped to meet all the needs of younger people with disability.
One of the three key recommendations from the Aged Care Royal Commission was
To stop the flow of younger people with a disability going into aged care, and speed up the process of getting out those young people who are already in aged care.
What are the reasons a someone younger may live in a nursing home?
