STEP BY STEP GUIDE
Whether your need for care is short term or long term, before moving to an Aged Care Home the steps outlined below will help you understand the process.
> Aged Care Assessment
> Search for a provider
> Understand Aged Care Costs
> Make an Application
Following Aged Care approvals by an ACAT member and research on providers in your preferred area, you can complete an admission application form with your chosen Aged Care provider. There may be other important admission documentation to be completed, your chosen provider can guide you through those.
> MOVE INTO YOUR NEW HOME
On the availability of a suitable room and completion of admission documentation, you can now move into your new home. Upon admission, a provider will present to you a “Resident Agreement” covering things like services, fees and your rights and responsibilities. The Resident Agreement is a legally binding document.
We hope the above has helped you understand the process of arranging Care services to moving into your home.
