FAQs

How can I apply for a residential aged care placement?

Before you can apply for a placement in one of our aged care facilities or nursing homes, you will need to be assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). Your GP can make a referral for you, or you can arrange one directly with My Aged Care by calling 1800 200 422.

Once you know the outcome of your assessment, it’s time to start looking for a home that suits you.

At Brightwater, we have 11 aged care homes across the Perth metro area. You can visit one of our residential aged care facilities to see if it suits you, and if it does, we’ll take you through the application process, which includes a clinical assessment.
