My Aged Care and DVA
My Aged Care shares more information on the services available to support veterans.
Can I receive services from DVA and My Aged Care at the same time?
If you are already receiving DVA-funded services, you may still be able to receive My Aged Care services so long as:
- you’re eligible for those services
- you only need entry-level support, and
- you’re not receiving the same service from both.
If you require more support find out about Garden Village Home Care.
