My Aged Care books ‘closed’

My wife and I are both in our 80s. I am still quite healthy for my age, but my wife suffers from peripheral neuropathy, which affects her mobility.

Earlier this year we applied for My Aged Care, only to find that the government had “closed the books”.

Through our local council, we are both able to access podiatry and my wife is able to access physiotherapy and other remedial help.

Many others we know enrolled earlier than we did, and have their package. This situation is totally unfair to us and other like us.
