I am 78 years old and previously attended a local community health centre for treatment of injuries, physio and the like.

However, since the introduction of My Aged Care, I am unable to do this.

On applying to My Aged Care in my area, I was told I was not able to get help for an injured shoulder (physio) because I “wasn’t disabled enough”.

I answered “yes” to too many questions. I was informed that I would have to go private.

I am on a full age pension. In my opinion, the current system is flawed. I would like to be re-assessed for treatment.
