We're happy to support you in the process of organising care for your elderly parent.
Simply give us a call on 1300 223 968 and ask to speak to our Welcome Team, who will gather some information about your parent and then explain the next steps to securing a suitable home.
From a government perspective, your first action is to register with My Aged Care and request an assessment for residential aged care, which is a requirement when seeking aged care services.
What is an ACAT assessment and how can I arrange one?
This is an assessment carried out by the Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) when an individual is hoping to access subsidised aged care services.
An assessment can be arranged through My Aged Care after you have registered for and acquired an Aged Care number.
What do I pay and what does the government pay?
What the government pays and what you pay depends on your financial situation and the outcome of your Income and Assets Assessment with Centrelink or Veterans Affairs.
Why do I need to complete an Income & Assets form?
Completing an Income and Assets Assessment will ensure that you do not pay more aged care fees than necessary.
How long is the waiting list to access residential aged care?
Our waiting lists vary from site to site.
So that you're ready when a vacancy arises, we will assess your needs, match you to the site which can best support your needs, provide a tour and help you complete the necessary paperwork to secure a position on our waiting list as soon as we can.
