Taking it step-by-step

We understand that transitioning into aged care can be daunting, but breaking it up into steps makes it more manageable.

Find out if you’re eligible

Where to start? The first step is to find out if you’re eligible for aged care services. All Arcare communities are government-funded, so potential residents must be assessed to receive care. The assessment will determine your care needs and what services we can claim through government funding.
