Is an assessment required to enter aged care?
All of our aged care communities are government funded and all potential residents need to be assessed by the government to determine eligibility. This assessment lets us know what type of care you may require, and allows the appropriate government funding to be received.
How do I get an aged care assessment?
Aged care assessments, called an ACAT (QLD/NSW) or ACAS (VIC), are conducted by local ACAS /ACAT teams. Local GPs can assist with arranging an assessment or regional ACAT/ACAS teams can be easily contacted on: 1800 200 422 or via http://www.myagedcare.gov.au.
What happens once an aged care assessment has been made?
