How Mary received help to manage Parkinson's Disease

Font Size:

When Mary was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease, the only way she could remain at home was with some help from My Aged Care.

More details are available through the My Aged Care website – myagedcare.gov.au and the information phone line on 1800 200 422.

Mary Hickey: It’s a good place to begin at the beginning. My name is Mary Hickey. We landed in 1969, with 13 bags, that trunk and nothing else, just us. I was diagnosed in January last year with Parkinson’s, so you just adjust to that. The care package is assessed on your income, they assess you by levels of your need and I’m a level two. It’s such a good system. Anything you want to know about what’s going on or what is available to you is on My Aged Care website.
