Veteran Support

Aged and Health Support

RSL Victoria provides information to ensure that the ex-service community understands all the options that may be available to them.

We can provide information and support regarding a range of issues, such as:

  • Aged care services – home care, respite and residential services
  • Health related issues e.g. dementia, diabetes, hearing loss
  • Health promotion, including provision of information sessions
  • Aids to stay living at home safely such as personal alarms, scooters, mobility aids
  • Housing support – such as retirement villages, independent living units, private rental
  • Friendly visiting to homes, hospitals or residential facilities
  • Contemporary veterans, including veteran well-being
  • Health advocacy where needed


This service is open to all current and former service personnel and their dependants, including allied forces.

RSL Victoria also provides assistance to aged care/health providers, such as:

  • Staff training and support for care practices in relation to veterans’ special needs;
  • Assessment tools for identifying members of the ex-service community and their individual experiences;
  • Enabling residents/clients to remain connected with ex-service organisations; and
  • Assisting providers apply for veteran specific aged care places and packages;
