Registrations for this project have now closed. Thank you to everyone who shared their story.

The Plug-in invites you to share your experience and the benefits you have enjoyed by seeking help at home. We know that asking for help can be a big step, so by sharing your story, you could encourage others to ask for the support they need to live independently for longer.

We are working with Liquid Interactive on behalf of their client, the Department of Health, to understand how asking for help at home has assisted people and improved their lives. This support might be cleaning or gardening help at home, assistance to go shopping or cook meals, or modifications to improve your safety and movement around your home.

Your story could be shared on the My Aged Care website to show how people can benefit from help at home, and encourage others to ask for support so they too can continue to live a fulfilling, comfortable and independent life at home for longer.

What’s involved?

We are seeking expressions of interest from people who have benefited from receiving help at home. We will select five people to share their story which will be published on the My Aged Care website, together with their name and photo.

Expressions of interest must include a brief overview of your experience and the benefits you have enjoyed since asking for help, together with a photograph of yourself.

Contact details and photograph of selected participants will be provided to Liquid Interactive who will undertake a one on one phone or Zoom call to fully understand your experience.

Am I eligible?

To be involved, you will need to:

  • Be aged 65 years or older;
