Aged Care

Residential Aged Care

Organising Services

Upon the completion of your assessment with ACAT (or ACAS), you will receive a letter detailing whether you have been approved for Government subsidised aged care services; and, what types of services you are eligible for and approved to receive.

As you will be leaving your place of residence and entering a residential aged care facility, it is important to find a place that you are comfortable with.

It may be helpful to organise a visit to several residential aged care facilities so that you are able to gain an understanding of what the accommodation is like as well as the services that each offer.

An ACAT/ACAS assessor will also provide you with information regarding residential aged care facilities (and, the services available in your relevant area), as well as, provide you with assistance in accessing the services you need.
