Moving to an aged care home is a big decision and it can be a challenging time for you and your loved ones. Once you’ve made the decision, it’s important to find the right aged care home for your individual care needs and a place where you feel at home. User-generated aged care reviews offer valuable insight into the standards offered at aged care homes in your local area, allowing you to make an informed choice.
What is agedcarereviews.com.au?
At agedcarereviews.com.au, you can read independent reviews of Australian aged care homes. It’s the only dedicated review site for the aged care sector in Australia, and its goal is to provide transparency for the community. Each review is written by a genuine consumer who have had an experience to share about a residential nursing home or home care provider.
The star rating system lets you gauge the level of service at a glance and the written reviews delve into the details of each experience. You can write your own review if you have already had an aged care experience that you would like to share.
How did Aged Care Reviews get started?
The Aged Care Reviews founders started the site in 2013 because they had previously struggled to find independent information about aged care homes for their loved ones. This made their aged care experience more stressful because it was difficult to know the quality of care in advance.
Aged care homes go through accreditation only every three years and they are assessed against the minimum Australian standard. Aged care reviews provide independent, user-generated feedback about each facility, which encourages aged care homes to strive for excellence.
Threee years after starting Aged Care Reviews, the founders saw a need for additional support for people during their aged care journey. This led to them starting Aged Care Decisions – a free service that supports you throughout the entire aged care process. Call our specialist Aged Care Decisions team on 1300 775 870 or complete our online registration form if you need aged care support.

Why read aged care reviews?
When you decide to move into an aged care home or access in-home aged care services, it can sometimes feel overwhelming and stressful.

This insight can be crucial in helping reduce your concerns and make your aged care journey a positive experience.
